Through this morning we’ve seen rain, sleet and snow edging South and Eastwards across the country, we’ve seen some fairly widespread snow but this has begun to turn increasingly to rain across Southern areas in particular.
Through this evening and overnight into tomorrow (Tuesday) though we’re going to see colder air digging in again as the low pressure system pushes to the South East of the country, this will also help aid the development of snow showers across Eastern areas in particular but also down into East Anglia and the South-East too. Accumulations of 1-5cm are widely expected but we could see up to 10cm across higher ground.
Further West things are expected to be largely dry, bright and cold with plenty of sunshine around and a widespread overnight frost, whilst the odd isolated snow flurry cannot be ruled out nothing significant is currently expected to develop through Tuesday.
The cold weather will be with us as we go through the rest of the week and into the weekend with a further snow shower risk into Eastern parts.
Things could become very interesting through Friday though as a weather front tries to push in from the Atlantic and as it hits the colder air it’ll begin to turn readily to snow across Western areas. There is a lot of uncertainty over this at the moment though with regards to the placement of this system but it’s something that needs monitoring.
