UK Weather: Snow will hit Britain for four days while Met Office warns of a cold snap

The British could face four days of snow, heavy rains and winds as a cold snap crosses parts of the country.

The Met Office says there is a risk of snow in the northern regions of England, Scotland and on higher ground between Saturday and Tuesday.

There will also be strong winds and rain, with a meteorologist who will describe the next few days as an “unstable picture”.

The Met Office has issued yellow weather warnings for snow and ice around parts of the UK tomorrow.

Meteorologists have warned that snow will affect higher routes and lead to difficult driving conditions and longer travel times by road, bus and train.

Met Office spokesman Nicola Maxey told Mirror Online: “We are in the coldest air, so there is always the possibility that the rains may fall like snow, sleet or hail, especially in the north. It is not unusual for this time of year. ‘year”.

He said it “comes from the back of Storms Ciara and Dennis”.

Maxey said: “The system crosses the UK overnight from Sunday to Monday, with winter showers all over the north – and there is a chance to see some hail.”

He said higher ground above 300m could be hit.

“Monday is likely to be up to 60mm of rain in areas that already have moist soil.

“There may be snow on higher ground as we go on Tuesday.

“On Saturday we were able to see some snow even on higher terrain due to the colder air.”

Matthew Box, a forecaster at the Met Office, previously said: “We have strong wind warnings for Friday in south-east Scotland and north-east England. They could hit from 55 miles to 65 miles per hour.

“There will also be large coastal galaxies in northern Scotland and Northern Ireland.

“We may have blizzard conditions at a time if you’re stuck on top of a mountain.”

The meteorologist predicted that there may be 20cm of snowfall in the mountains of Scotland, reports Bristol Live, although irregular rains made it difficult to predict.

Snow is already falling through parts of Snowdonia National Park and the hills in north and central Wales, according to radar images.

BBC senior forecaster Derek Brockway tweeted yesterday: “Cold front and sharp rain crossing the river #UK this morning.

“Snow falling on the hills and mountains #Wales. Drier and clearer weather #Ireland with broken clouds, sun and scattered showers. Turning considerably colder with a drop temperature and a change in the wind direction. ”

The Met Office has confirmed that February 2020 has been officially the wettest in six years, as flooded Britain seems destined to rain harder for fear that the water defenses won’t hold up.

Meteorologist Craig Snell, speaking with Mirror Online, previously said that this month’s average rainfall is currently 133 mm across the UK, and that it was last hit in 2014 when it touched 168 mm.

According to the data, 1990 had the wettest month with an average rainfall of 193 mm, and while Snell said that this month is very far away, it would not be surprising if 2020 reached the top 10 in the following eight days.

“We are not too far away, we have received further heavy rains in the coming days and the first 10 wettest [February] it wouldn’t be a stretch, but we still have a long way to go to break the record, “he said.
