The UK may experience up to eight inches of snow this week, as indicated by a yellow weather warning from the Met Office.
There is a possibility of a heavy snowstorm causing disturbances towards the end of this week, with potential accumulations of up to eight inches in elevated regions.
The Met Office has issued a yellow snow warning for much of Wales, northern England, and central England. As the week progresses, temperatures are expected to decrease.
The Met Office reported that on Thursday, a mix of rain, sleet, and snow will move north, potentially resulting in 2cm of snow at lower elevations, 2-5cm on ground above 200m, and up to 10-20cm at elevations above 400m.
The caution impacts the regions of East Midlands, East of England, North East England, North West England, Wales, West Midlands, and Yorkshire & Humber.
This comes as a weather pattern brings cold air from the north while mild air keeps nudging in from the south, creating conditions for frost and snow.
The forecaster mentioned that additional ice warnings may be given later this week due to temperatures falling below the usual level for this season.
There is a heightened indication of potential winter dangers.
This week, the Met Office has provided information about the potential for snow.
Chris Almond, the Deputy Chief Meteorologist, stated that there is a growing indication of potential wintry dangers as the week progresses due to the influx of cold air from the north over the UK.
Starting from Thursday, there is a possibility of significant snowfall as warm air from the south clashes with cold air, creating conditions for snow where the two systems converge.
“Although there are still many specifics to be determined, the initial chance of snow appears to be greatest in the northern regions of England and Wales starting on Thursday. There is a potential for 1-2cm of snow at lower elevations, while higher elevations within the warning area could see 10-20cm. This snow will likely transition to a mix of sleet and rain later on, starting from the southern areas.”
for parts of England
Parts of England are currently under a yellow weather warning.
Currently, there is a yellow weather warning in effect for snow and ice in a significant portion of Scotland. This warning is anticipated to remain in place until noon on Wednesday.
What is the predicted amount of snowfall?
At low elevations, there is a possibility of 1-2 centimeters of precipitation, while areas above 200 meters may see 2-5cm. Higher elevations above 400m could potentially receive 10-20cm of precipitation.
The alert has been revised and will be in effect from 6am on Thursday to 6am on Friday, with the affected area now shifted to the north.
This region spans from Cumbria and the Scottish Borders to Nottingham in England, excluding the eastern coast. It also includes Northern Ireland and northern Wales.
According to the forecaster, there is a possibility of power outages, transportation delays, and isolated rural areas being isolated.
Later in the day on Thursday, the snow is expected to decrease and could potentially change to rain or light rain, particularly in the southern and eastern regions.
The Met Office’s deputy chief meteorologist, Chris Almond, stated that although there will be some rain, potentially heavy, at the beginning of this week, it will gradually move south. However, there is a higher likelihood of experiencing wintry conditions as the week progresses due to cold air from the north moving over the UK.
Towards the end of the warning period, the snow will change to a mixture of sleet and rain from the south.
The forecaster stated that additional ice advisories may be given later this week, as temperatures are expected to fall below the usual average for this season.
