A whole array of weather models are now firming up on the most significant cold spell to hit the UK for many years!
Some this week have already had a taste of wintry weather but this is not even close to the levels of snowfall expected from next week onwards.
The UKMO, GFS and ECM models that are all widely referred to predict heavy snow, To start with hitting Northern Scotland Monday night then spreading South Eastwards throughout Tuesday into Wednesday.
This spell of snowfall comes about as low pressure slips Southwards across the UK and heads into Europe. This then allows a period of brutal Easterly winds to develope with some areas potentially at risk of a foot or more of snow!
There is also the risk of strong winds for a time which will lead to Blizzard conditions and drifting snow.
Going further past next week the theme looks set to continue with a high chance of Northern blocking remaining in place keeping things cold with a risk of further snowfalls.
