The UK is bracing for an ice storm as an Atlantic system erupts, according to the Met Office.

After a bone-chilling Friday, the UK is set for more snow this weekend.

Forecasters predict that while Saturday and Sunday will warm up after a chilly Thursday and Friday, the weather will remain “unsettled.”

Greenland’s Atlantic pressure continues to affect Britain, according to maps and charts.

Snow will arrive at the start of the weekend, according to Jason Nicholls, Lead International Forecaster at AccuWeather.

“A front will bring rain to the United Kingdom on Saturday, with snow in the Scottish Highlands,” he said.

“Another front will bring showers to the UK on Monday night and Tuesday,” says the Met Office.

“The Scottish Highlands may see some snow again Monday night.”

With high pressure in control, the remainder of next week looks dry.”

According to WXCharts, a weather front from Greenland will bring snow and rain to the UK on Saturday morning.

Scotland will receive up to 13cm of snow as of 6 a.m., while the western parts of Wales and England will see lighter snowfall and rain.

By 3 p.m., the rain will have moved westward into Europe, with snowfall strewn across the west coast of the United Kingdom.

By 6 p.m., however, another weather front will have moved into the UK, bringing snow to much of the west.

On’s website, senior forecaster Nick Finnis predicted “unpredictable” weather for the weekend.

“A wet morning for most on Saturday,” he said, “as widespread outbreaks of rain spread east, the rain becoming heavy as a cold front approaches from the west.”

“Heavy rain clearing England and Wales through the afternoon to sunshine and showers from the west, though the rain may not clear SE England and East Anglia until late afternoon.”

“Less cold than today, with temperatures ranging from 6 to 9 degrees Celsius in the north and 9 to 11 degrees Celsius in the south.

It will, however, be a windy day, making it feel colder than the temperatures indicate.”

Craig Snell, a Met Office forecaster, said Friday had been a “wintry 24 hours” across much of the UK.

“England and Wales will be very wet and windy on Saturday,” he continued.

“For some of us, Thursday through Saturday will be a very unsettling day.

Sunday looks to be drier and brighter, though the north-west will see rain showers.
