Will it snow in?

With cold air filtering across the UK our inbox tends to get busy and one question that is asked the most is of course, Will it snow in my back yard…

With that in mind and to answer everyone in one go we have decided we will take a look at when and where snow is most likely to fall.

Well first and foremost we look at this evening. Snowfall is expected over high ground in the Lake District, North Yorkshire Moors, Southern Uplands, Cairngorms and Grampians.

Of course most of us dont live on the top of a mountain so the first prospect of snowfall for lower areas will be wednesday morning.

Due to the battle of air masses West Vs East the band of precipitation pushing west to east on monday bringing snowfall for high ground will do a U-Turn and head back west as the coldest air wins out. As it does so the back edge of this looks like bringing the first snowfall for low lying areas.

Following on from Wednesday we see a continuation of possible light snow for those down the eastern coast until the weekend where the models are hinting at more widespread and potentially disruptive snowfall with places further inland seeing snow. At this stage its to early to firm up on the detail on that.

So to summarise. Cold for all. Snow most likely in the East. Potentially disruptive as we head into the weekend.

We will have an update tomorrow.
