After a ‘powerful Icelandic low,’ ice is expected in the UK as a bitter -6C blast freezes snow.
THE WEATHER IN BRITAIN MAY CHANGE OVER THE NEXT WEEK, WITH A MIXTURE OF SNOW SHOWERS AND DRY WEATHER DRIVING THE WEATHER CONDITIONS.
According to the forecast, the next few days will see some sunshine, rain, frost in some areas, and then some dry weather.
In Scotland, the lowest temperature is expected to be between -2 and -6 degrees Celsius.
“A warm front will sweep east across the United Kingdom Sunday and Sunday night, with only a few showers in northern England and Scotland, as well as over southwestern England and Wales,” said Dave Bowers, senior meteorologist with AccuWeather.com.
“Snow showers will be confined to the Scottish Highlands, accumulating little but causing icy spots.”
“Snow levels will be falling as well, but accumulations appear to be light and limited to the Scottish Highlands again this far out.”
Snow, ice, rain, and even high winds, according to weather experts, are unlikely to occur through Sunday the 16th.
“A cold front will bring some showers to northern England and Scotland Tuesday and Tuesday night, with snow showers in the Highlands but very little accumulation,” Mr Bowers added.
“The weather will be mostly dry from Wednesday to Friday.”
“The next cold front will arrive later Saturday and Sunday, bringing rain and snow showers to northern England and Scotland, as well as strong winds and colder temperatures.”
According to Accuweather meteorologist Jim Andrews, the latest forecast comes after the UK was hit by a “powerful Icelandic low” on Saturday.
Sunday night and early Monday morning will have the coldest temperatures of the week.
Temperatures of -2 to -6 degrees Celsius have been recorded in the interior of northern Scotland.
Temperatures of 0 to 4 degrees Celsius are expected across northern England.
The week’s precipitation will be below average, with long stretches of dry weather.
“Early showers in the west gradually becoming confined to parts of northern England later on Sunday,” according to the Met Office’s weather forecast.
“Sunny spells in the south and east, with rain in far southwest England later.”
“Cloud and rain outbreaks are expected to spread southeast early in the week, brightening in the north on Tuesday,” according to the forecast for Monday to Wednesday.
“Beginning around midweek, it became increasingly settled, with overnight frost and morning fog patches.”
