The Met Office has provided the precise dates for a dusting of snow in Yorkshire next week. The entire country could get snow, and but it will most likely fall on higher ground, while it may also reach some lower levels.
The Met Office say “heavy shower and snow” are expected over the coming days. Along with high ground, snow is expected in some regions of the north.
The Met Office has forecast snow for the UK – saying “heavy showers and snow” are possible in the coming days. Meteorologist Aidan McGivern said: “We do have this extensive area of low cloud, mist and fog patches through central and southern parts of the UK.
Places that can expect snow are Sheffield, Bradford, Huddersfield and York areas from early morning until 12 noon on Friday 9th December.
The Met Office has given a wet and dreary forecast for its look ahead at the rest of the month saying: “On Tuesday, showers and rain are expected in the south, southeast and north of the UK. Moreover, snow and heavy showers are then possible across high ground. Moderate winds are expected in most areas, locally strong in the north and perhaps south of the UK.
“Snow and snow showers are expected at times across high-ground areas. Temperatures are likely to be below normal through the period, possibly feeling rather cold.”
“It looks like turning even colder from Wednesday. Showers will fall increasingly as snow in the north, even to lower levels at times with notable accumulations over the Scottish mountains.”
Looking ahead from December 16 to the New Year, the Met Office said: “Confidence is low for this period, but overall settled and relatively dry weather is more likely than stormy weather. At this time of year frost and fog are common, and the chance of these, along with below-normal temperatures and spells of wintry precipitation, is slightly higher than usual.”
