Latest weather maps have suggested snow could cover Britain for some time

Britons should brace themselves for snow as the Met Office confirms that temperatures will drop to below freezing next week.

Weather maps are turning white as snowfall is expected in parts of the UK as mercury drops as low as -7C.

The Met office said to expect "hill snow affecting parts of Scotland and northeast England" from Monday onwards.

Met Office Deputy Chief Meteorologist, Dan Harris, said: “The most likely outcome beyond mid-week is that rain from the west slowly moves east, with snow possible over higher ground, and a continued risk of showers over eastern parts.

“However, there is a chance that a more active weather system arrives from the southwest, which would bring more widespread rain, stronger winds, and the potential for more significant snowfall should the air over the UK become sufficiently cold ahead of it.”

The weather office expects that as the month draws to a close, there will be a “potential snow event”.

They expect the week will start “dry and widely cold at first, with a few showers around coasts”.

The wet weather is expected to turn into snowfall and sleet in parts of north and east England.


Snow is expected to fall particularly heavily on hilly areas.

The wintery conditions will likely last for a fortnight, according to weather maps.

WX Charts has identified where snow will specifically fall, when it will hit Britain and how long the UK will be blanketed for.

It will spread across Great Britain next Friday, stretching from Wick to just outside London.

The snow bomb will batter England next Thursday, beginning at around 9am.

Mercury will dip below freezing across the UK, with -5C in Wales and -7C in North West England.

The weather maps suggest the snow will remain in place until the end of its current long-range forecast on December 10.
