UK weather forecast: Exact date of snow as 900 mile-wide ‘Arctic plunge’ hits

The UK is set to be plunged into an arctic chill, with a ten-day long cold snap due to hit the country from tomorrow.

The Met Office has predicted coatings of the white stuff up and down the nation, with some areas expected to hit lows of -7C.

Forecasters have said parts of the North will see snowfall from Monday, with Scotland first in line for some flurries.

Snow is expected to make an appearance in the South from Wednesday night, while sleet has also been predicted to hit London in the middle of next week.

The capital is predicted to hit a maximum of 7C over the next week.

Elsewhere, lows of -7C are expected later in the week. With the temperature drop will come ice and frost sweeping across the country.

The long range forecast given by the Met Office for November 22- December 1 says: “High pressure will often lie close to western or southwestern parts of the UK during this period.

“This will tend to bring to a colder than average north or northwesterly airflow for a time.

“The most unsettled conditions will likely be across northern areas.

“Here, showers or longer spells of rain are likely with snow likely across higher ground and possibly falling to low levels at times.

“Strong winds are possible across the north, especially around coasts.

“Further south, it is likely to remain somewhat drier with fewer showers, but there is even a slight chance of some wintry weather here.

“At points when winds ease any clearer and calmer conditions that prevail will lead to some cold nights with frost and fog.”

Met Office forecaster Marco Petagna told the Sun he “couldn’t imagine a better weather pattern for cold weather fans, with forecast models showing a northerly straight from the Arctic next week.

“It turns much colder from the north later in the weekend. From Sunday, rain is likely in the North, with some snow across higher ground, possibly reaching low levels at times.

“Further south looks to have fewer showers, but with a slight chance of wintry weather, and chilly nights with frost in places.”

A spokesman for MetDesk added: “Look away now if you don’t like the cold. A big change is shown for next week, with Arctic winds, plummeting temperatures and snow for some.”

It comes after forecasters predicted up to 24cm of the white stuff will fall across north western Scotland next weekend as temperatures plummet.

“Icelandic air” is set to swoop over to the UK towards the end of next week, sending temperatures plummeting across the country.

The BBC weather forecast for the month reads: “A surge of colder Icelandic air will spill across the UK over the final ten days of November and linger into the first few days of December.

“The most prominent drivers of this pattern will be high pressure in the Atlantic and a trough over Continental Europe.”
