Snow has been forecasted to cover Britain for another 48 hours, with the possibility of 20 centimetres accumulating in certain areas. The mercury is expected to continue dropping below freezing, with WXCHARTS predicting -6C in Scotland tonight. Wintry conditions seem likely to persist shortly after snow caused disruption at Glasgow Airport.
According to the weather website Netweather, “It doesn’t end tonight. Once the overnight rain, sleet and snow clears east, further showers or longer spells of rain, locally heavy, look to spread northeast across Wales, Midlands and northern England Sunday morning, turning to snow as it moves into colder air hanging on towards the north, chiefly over the hills, but perhaps to lower elevations of north Wales and northern England for a time.”
“Then during the evening and overnight into Monday, a deepening low-pressure system over the Atlantic looks to move northeast across SW England by midnight, before moving east across southern England during Monday.”
“This low will spread outbreaks of heavy rain north and east across England and Wales during Monday, reaching southern Scotland in the evening, the rain turning readily to snow across the hills of Wales and northern England, but also perhaps to lower levels too here.” “The snow could be quite heavy, especially over higher ground, leading to some significant accumulations.” “Parts of Wales, Shropshire, Herefordshire, N Midlands and Peak District may see 10-20cm by the end of Monday.”
