Through the course of Friday morning and into the afternoon an area of low pressure moving up into Southern England will bring a period of heavy rainfall across many Southern and Central parts of the country. Colder air will move down from the North at the same time and this could give a brief spell of snowfall across parts of Wales, the Midlands and into East Anglia.

Whilst accumulation is currently considered to be a low possibility, 1-2cm across higher ground cannot be ruled out.

Through the weekend and into the early part of next week we’re going to see the generally mild and showery theme continue with further spells of rain as low pressure systems track between Iceland and Scotland.

As we move towards the middle part of the week however high pressure building Northwards in the Atlantic and low pressure dropping down into Scandinavia could well bring some much colder Northerly winds bringing the risk of more significant snowfall, particularly in the North although there is of course still some uncertainty over how this is going to pan out.

ECM model shows a fairly straight Northerly for the middle of next week

So we have the snow risk through tomorrow across some parts before a showery but mild weekend/early start to next week before things potentially turn colder again from the North.
