UK snow forecast: Shock weather chart shows UK will be battered by snow this week | Weather | News

The warning comes after Britons were told they should prepare for temperatures as low as -10C over the next two weeks. According to Net Weather there is a 90 percent chance of snowfall in parts of Scotland on Saturday and an 80 percent chance in parts of northern England. Their forecast chart shows parts of the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District are likely to be affected.

The snow risk is extended from Carlisle in the West to Newcastle upon Tyne in the East.

The warning comes after the Met Office said snow and sleet could have already appeared in parts of the Scottish highlands.

Meteorologist Greg Dewhurst said: “I wouldn’t be surprised if any precipitation around the tops of the Scottish highlands wouldn’t already be falling as set or even snow.

“There is a download trend in temperatures next week and with this we could see some morning frosts and the possibility of fog.

“There are going to be some chilly nights ahead, and in terms of the end of November and the beginning of November, temperatures may start to fall below average.

“There are hints it will start to turn chilly from next week.”

In a long-range forecast statement, the Met Office said next weekend could see “very windy conditions” sweep across much of the UK.

They predicted “Atlantic fronts” to bring rain and strong winds and the unsettled spells could usher in colder conditions and frosty nights.

Britain is set to see temperatures plummet to -10C before the end of the month thanks to Polar winds blasting across the country, some forecasters have claimed.

Exacta Weather forecaster James Madden said a “prolonged period of very cold weather” is expected this winter.

The Met Office warned on Sunday about the possibility of conditions colder than would normally be expected this time of year.

Meteorologist Becky Mitchell said: “It will be very chilly come Monday morning as we see a widespread frost develop but further south it will be cloudy.

“First thing on Monday we’ll see more in the way of sunny spells and a few showers in the southeast.”

This week will also see the mercury falling to -3C in parts of Scotland and the north of England.

Commuters in the Scottish highlands have been warned to expect thick fog in the mornings.

A cold snap is also set to descend on the continent this week, with the BBC warning that France could be lashed with “very heavy rains” and winds of up to 100km per hour.
