Britain Snow

Britain is set to be lashed by up to 10 cm of snow after temperatures dive as low as –9 degrees Celsius on the coldest night of autumn until this point. This week has brought the first cold snap of this season with temperatures a few degrees beneath the normal levels, and nasty weather will be seen from Tuesday.

The Met Office has given heavy downpour alerts for some regions of England and Northern Ireland as heavy rains are threatening flood-desolated towns in Yorkshire and the Midlands.

Heavy snowfall is expected over parts of Scotland, Wales as well as England from Wednesday night, and there could be sleet and flakes over Northern Ireland too. The higher ground of Scotland, northern England and Wales will oversee some snow and sleet on Tuesday morning and from thereon, it will begin to improve.

In Scotland, substantial snow is likely as a front moves in from the west between Wednesday and Thursday, with 5-10 cm expected over the Cairngorms and a couple of centimeters in the Highlands.

North East of England is expected to see snow up to 4 cm with 1 cm expected in the Peak District in central parts of England. Some snow may be seen over high ground in Wales. As temperatures drop, ice patches, freezing fog and frost is expected.

Normal temperatures for this season are around 10 to 11 degrees Celsius in the south and 8 degrees Celsius in the north, with minimums around 5 degrees in the south and 2 to 3 degrees Celsius in the north.
