Just when you thought the worst of the weather was over, The Met Office has warned that snow could hit Yorkshire this week as the cold snap comes after Storm Malik and Storm Corrie. It’s looking to be a wet and windy February by the sounds of it as well.
Storm Corrie blew trees down, damaged power lines and ripped roofs off homes in the north of England and Scotland on Saturday.
Levels will continue to drop, and forecasters have predicted that snow could hit God’s Own Country on Friday as an arctic plunge is set to hit. Over the weekend, the temperatures should be back up to 11 degrees – with wind and rain forecasted.
Sunday is looking dreary and heavy rain and strong winds are expected for the north.
From February 6 to 15th, the forecaster states: “Most places will be fairly cloudy on Sunday, and outbreaks of rain will move southeast through the day, with colder conditions to the north, and milder conditions to the south.
“Through the rest of the period, high pressure remains to the southwest of the UK and is expected to push low-pressure systems towards the north of the country.
“This will lead to an unsettled picture for much of the UK with heavy rain, stronger winds and a risk of wintry precipitation in the north while the south is expected to remain largely dry. It will be milder for many especially in the south of the country while brief colder incursions from the north are possible throughout the period.”
