Unless you’ve been living under a rock in the last few days you’ll know that tomorrow (Friday) is going to see an area of significant snowfall pushing Eastwards across the country. Not much has changed since my last article with the focus of the snow being across Wales, West Midlands and down into South-Western parts of England, though perhaps more in the way of snow across Northern Ireland expected now instead of the rain the models were currently predicting yesterday.
The snow looks likely to linger across Eastern and South-Eastern areas through into Saturday though I think turning lighter and patchier here as the day progresses. Through into Sunday the area of low pressure that brought Fridays snowfall will slip away into Central France and this will bring winds around to more of an Easterly direction bringing the risk of heavier snow showers into Eastern parts in particular.
It’s into Monday and Tuesday though that things once again become uncertain, there is the potential for another area of low pressure to push into Western areas and as the precipitation hits that cold air it’ll once again begin to turn to snow.
The tracking of this system is still uncertain and I think it’ll be a couple of days before we can start to highlight the snow risk areas but it’s something I’ll be keeping a close eye on.
