UK-Snow-RIsk-MapWith the warmer Spring-Like weather we’re having at the moment it’s easy to forget that we are still in April and things can change very quickly with the weather.

The models have been hinting at something colder towards next weekend and that indeed remains the case. High Pressure developing in the Atlantic will allow colder air to flow down from the North. At the moment there’s still some uncertainty over the developments but it seems likely temperatures will drop off quite widely with highs of around 10c by the weekend and overnight lows close to or below freezing away from coastal regions.

The colder air may also bring an increased risk of sleet and snow for Scotland and Northern England, particularly but perhaps not exclusively so to higher levels. Further South any showers that do develop are likely to be of rain or hail.

Due to the uncertainties at this time frame and time of year the risk is currently considered low.
