Snow Showers Across East

  • Snow Showers Across East

    Tap here to send in a sky pic from where you are...


Low pressure across the North Sea will continue to feed in cold, raw Northerly winds across Eastern parts of the UK during the course of today. Showers too for parts of Northern and Eastern Scotland as well as Northeast coasts of England and into East Anglia where surface temperatures will allow these showers to fall as sleet and snow at lower levels. Winds touching gale force for a time this afternoon along parts of North Norfolk.

Channeling of showers is also expected across the Irish Sea which will allow a stream of showers to develop across parts of West and Southwest Wales and into parts of Devon and Cornwall which will fall as sleet and snow across higher ground. During the afternoon the showers across Eastern England will start to edge further East whilst more general cloud will edge in from the Southwest.

Temperatures at or just above freezing across many parts of the British Isles today. However, add on the win chill and it will feel particularly cold across Eastern regions. Temperatures falling away quickly tonight with a widespread hard ground frost for all areas away from the coast.

February To Start Cold



A cold start to February is on the cards for much of the country as we draw in colder air from the north thanks to low pressure taking up residence to our east whilst out to the west a ridge of high pressure extends northwards from the Azores. This set-up looks like lasting into next week before the ridge of high pressure looks set to move in later in the week bringing some hard frosts.

There will be some snow around too, primarily around coasts exposed to the winds which will become northerly from the weekend onwards, but there is certainly the scope for troughs to develop and move south bringing a risk of snow to more inland locations as well. We urge you to check forecasts daily as the snow risk will change markedly from day to day, and any features that do develop can only be picked up by forecasters at relatively short notice.

One feature we are monitoring though is the approach of an Atlantic low pressure system on Monday which could bring a longer spell of rain, sleet and snow to the west and southwest of the country. The exact track and intensity of this system will be crucial, and will likely not be determined until the weekend. Keep checking the live feed and our Facebook and Twitter pages for the latest updates as they happen.

Colder Weather On Way?



Some of the models have been hinting at colder weather to come next week as the jet stream makes a poor attempt to push to the North of the UK only to be forced South and West of the British Isles during the middle part of the week.

This type of set up will allow low pressure near Iceland to deepen and rapidly push Southeast dragging in colder air from the North with it too. At the moment the time frame we are watching is during Wednesday when a very active cold front could spread Southeast with much colder air behind and widespread wintry showers for many areas.

After this it starts to get a bit more complicated as weather models suggest the cold pool stagnating over the British Isles with frequent wintry showers for Northern and Eastern areas lasting right through to next weekend. As with any Northerly set up it tends to mean coastal areas of Northern, Northeastern and Eastern England and Scotland tend to see snow showers, for many others it means bright and cold with some night frosts to come.
