Weather charts warn ‘270-mile polar snowbomb’ could hit Brits next month

Brits could face a 270-mile 'snow bomb' with the midlands, east of England and parts of the north worst affected.

The polar blast is forecast to strike early next month, from Cromer in Norfolk all the way to Dorset – around 270 miles.

WX Charts show a band of snow that will cause havoc and unleash wintry showers at around 6am on Tuesday, March 9.

But the Met Office has dismissed reports that the entirety of the UK will be struck by a snow storm in a fortnight.

The weather service said it's unlikely all the country will be blanketed by snow with polar winds, writes BristolLive.

If the weather forecast proves true, Birmingham, Wales, parts of West Midlands, Glouchestshire, Bristol, Dorset and Somerset will be affected.

If the entire band of snow blankets roads and fields, Norfolk, Peterborough, north Cambridge, Leicester and parts of Northampton could also be at risk.

A spokesperson said: "There is nothing like that in our immediate forecast, or in our longer 30-day outlook which can be seen on our website homepage".

In the long range forecast for March 9, the Met Office states: "The UK will probably see a continuation of settled conditions during the beginning of March with predominantly dry weather likely across most areas.

“Later in the month a more mobile pattern may begin to develop with an increasing likelihood of Atlantic weather systems moving across the UK, bringing wetter conditions.

“The most unsettled conditions will likely be seen further north. Strong winds may also develop at times, particularly in the northwest, with winds likely lighter overall in the southeast. Temperatures will probably be near normal or slightly above average for the time of year.”

The UK weather forecast for the end of February includes milder temperatures, which are a stark contrast to what Brits endure at the beginning of the month.

An 'extreme freeze' took over the country and people woke up to several inches of snowfall over the course of a week.

Cars were stranded by drifting snow and Public Health England issued a warning for the icy cold weather.
