Nearly half of the UK braced for snow by the end of this month

Nearly half of the UK braced for snow by the end of this month

Wintry conditions are on their way

Almost half of the UK could be hit with snow by the end of the month, according to new weather charting maps.

Forecasting models have shown that large parts of the country will be set for wintry conditions by the end of the month.

Exacta Weather forecaster James Madden told the Daily Star that ‘snow is coming’ across the UK, not just the northern highlands.

He added: “Even parts as far south as the Midlands, Central/Southern England will be brought into the mix."

According to weather maps from WX Charts, parts of northern England could have as much as 5cm of snow, with an inch of snow in Wales on 28 November. Northern Scotland might see up to 8cm of snow by 30 November.

London could also see some of the white stuff during this period, too.

Speaking to the Daily Star, Madden said: "The first major wintry and snowy blast of the season is now starting to build.

"There is now the ever-increasing and quite high risk that this wintry blast will strike within the exact period we have been covering for over the past several weeks, and since our earliest indications on this from early September onwards. "The worst hit areas also look likely to be across the northern half of the country for this period and this does also include snow to lower levels in these parts too.

"However, as we get nearer the time, it is now also becoming increasingly likely that we will see some of this snow reaching some much lower levels of the country, and even parts as far south as the Midlands, Central/Southern England will be brought into the mix for snow within this period too."

Meanwhile, the Met Office has warned that the first snowfall could actually happen this weekend.

Met Office forecaster Aidan McGivern said: “For the start of Saturday, we keep the cold conditions at first across parts of Central and Eastern Scotland.

“There will be a touch of frost in the northeast of Scotland and some snowflakes over the hills and mountains as well, as the rain bumps into into that cold air.

“It's much milder as we start off Saturday further south and south-west. However, by mid-morning, it's looking like a wet and windy picture across many parts of the country.

“Not very pleasant at all if you're heading out on Saturday morning: outbreaks of rain for most of the UK, a lot of cloud cover and a strong wind with 50mph wind gusts possible around southern coasts.”
