Cold and snowy week ahead

A cold week ahead for the whole UK with the continued snow predominantly in the east.

Cold air is now firmly in place across the whole of the UK, with wind chill making conditions feel even colder. Snow showers will continue to feed into eastern parts of the UK bringing further snow accumulations to the regions that saw snow over the weekend.

A number of National Severe Weather Warnings for snow are in force, with further warnings likely to be issued through the week.

Chief Meteorologist Steve Ramsdale, said:

“With cold air across all of the UK any precipitation will fall as snow. Snow showers will continue to feed into eastern parts through the week. Many places will see further snow accumulations with a few centimetres likely quite widely. Some areas will see larger accumulations with 20 cm or more possible for some. Convergence lines, where showers organise into bands, becoming heavy and persistent, are likely to drive these larger accumulations and further warnings are likely to be issued as the locations affected become clearer.

“Overnight temperatures will be notably low through the week, especially in areas with lying snow. We can expect to see -10°C  as far south as East Anglia later in the week. Daytime temperatures will also be cold, only reaching 1 or 2 degrees Celsius for many early in the week. With strong winds as well the wind chill will make it feel much colder.”
