The colder air has really begun to dig down across the country today with snow across many Northern and North Western parts with up to 10cm being recorded across higher ground. The snow risk is going to fade away over the next couple of days with sleet and snow being confined to Northern and Eastern coastal areas.

Looking ahead to the weekend however an area of low pressure pushing Southwards across the country could bring a period of more significant snowfall to many Northern and Central parts of the country. The exact tracking of this system is currently uncertain with models tending to diverge a fair amount. The UKMO and ECM are somewhat in agreement, however.

At the moment anywhere away from the far West could be seeing some snowfall this coming weekend and Sunday in particular, however it’s going to be a few days yet before we can pin point the details of where the rain will begin to turn to snowfall. An advanced watch has been issued and this will be upgraded closer to the time period.
