Met Office pinpoints day next week where all of Britain will see snow

Brits should prepare for another dip in temperatures as weather conditions are expected to become more unsettled with the chances of snow falling increasing.

Several unpleasant weather conditions were listed by the Met Office in what they predict will occur next week.

They include ice, sleet and overnight frosts, all of which will lead to Brits putting that extra layer on.

The Met Office's long-range forecast targets Tuesday (January 17) as the day snow falls for the first time in 2023.

Looking from January 17 to January 26 it says: "Tuesday will see a continuation of sunny spells and wintry showers in many central and northern areas, with an area of rain, sleet and snow perhaps affecting some southern Britain for a time.

"Windy in the southwest with a chance of gales here. Further into the week colder conditions than of late are expected to continue, with overnight frost and some further wintry showers and ice."

Tony Zartman, senior meteorologist at Accuweather had this to say on the likelihood of snow: "As far as snow potential, the greatest chance for accumulating snow will be across Scotland, Northern Ireland and northern parts of England, even at lower elevations.

"Across the south, it is not out of the question that precipitation can be wintry at times.

"But, the overall takeaway is that we are heading toward a period of colder weather next week with the opportunity at least for some wintry precipitation.

"The exact locations and amounts still need to be worked out in the coming days."

A fellow senior meteorologist, Jim Dale, who works for British Weather Services spoke about the origins of the cold freeze set to take hold of Britain next week, as he said it hails from Scandinavia and labelled it as "transient".
