UK set to be hit with snow over the next 48hours!

Cold air has been filtering across the UK over the past 12 hours and the risk of snow is on the rise.

During the next 48 hours there will be showers of rain, sleet, hail and snow which are expected to be heavy at times. 

This coupled with a brisk wind will see the temperatures feel significantly colder than the true air temp. 

But what about that threat of snow i hear you ask…

Current model predictions expect a wintry mix with a particular risk for snowfall above 200m. Despite this certain parts of the West Midlands and Wales could see snow down to low levels during the early hours of Wednesday morning making that morning commute a little tricky.

Elsewhere parts of Yorkshire, Scottish central belt and the Scottish Highlands could all see some snowfalling for a time throughout wednesday. 

Beyond this the UK finds itself in a battle between low pressure trying to push in and High pressure situated to the North. The high pressure wants to push cold Arctic air southwards whilst powerful low pressure systems want to sweep mild air in off the Atlantic. Given the time range each model output has its own version of how this pans out but should it be high pressure we could be faced with another cold blast as we move into December.
