Through Saturday night and into Sunday a small area of low pressure sliding Southwards will begin to draw in colder Easterly winds, an area of precipitation, initially rain will slide Southwards across the UK in association with the weather front.

Snow-Risk-MapThere’s still some uncertainty over where and when the rain will begin to turn to snow, initially higher ground is the favored area for snowfall. As it continues to move Southwards and the colder air undercuts we should begin to see snowfall down to lower levels too, perhaps giving some localised accumulations.

Into early next week confidence drops away significantly but there is growing potential for something more disruptive and significant. An area of low pressure running into the English Channel could bring some heavy disruptive snowfall into Southern parts of England. The exact tracking and intensity of this system however remains uncertain with different models projecting different outcomes.

Warnings-Panel---NewThrough Monday overnight into Tuesday an area of low pressure moving up into the English Channel from the South-West has the potential to bring a period of heavy disruptive snowfall across Southern counties of England. Due to the uncertainty in the tracking and intensity of this system, it’s not possible to go into much more detail at this stage. Updates however will be given over the coming days as this system develops and it’s tracking becomes clearer.
