Farmers Weather’s Dr Simon Keeling said after the relatively warm weather of winter so far, temperatures over the next few days could come as a shock.
“As winds swing into the north and north west early in the new week, cold air from the north pole will be dragged through all parts of the UK and Ireland,” said Dr Keeling.
“This will be turning precipitation increasingly to sleet and snow, even at low levels. The first indication of the colder weather is likely to be later on Monday.
“Bands of snow showers pass southwards, falling at low levels even over southern England. A few places are likely to have a covering of snow, with more significant totals across hills.”
Dr Keeling forecasted daytime temperatures in the region of 1 DegC in northern Scotland to 5 DegC in southern England.
“Overnight temperatures around -2 DegC to -6 DegC, but as low as -10 DegC over prone areas with snow cover, such as central Scotland and the hills and valleys of northern England,” he added.
“As we are still some time from the onset of the colder weather it is difficult to predict at this time where the most persistent of any snow will be, but of course we will keep you informed in our daily videos.”
