Forecasters predict more snow to fall in the UK this month. A -5C deep freeze is expected to strike parts of the UK within days.
The Met Office stated in their long-range forecast, beginning January 23, that: “A more unsettled regime is most likely during late January and into early February with spells of wet and windy weather followed by brighter but showery interludes.
“While the majority of temperatures will be above or near average, there may be some cooler interludes.
“Snow could fall to lower levels at times in any colder interludes but is most likely over higher ground in the north.”
WX ChartsMet Office also released weather modeling maps which support their prediction of more snow. But they think it will arrive before January 23.
Maps show that a front with heavy rain and snow will move through several regions, especially the north, between Saturday, January 15th, and Tuesday, February 18.
WX Charts indicates that northern Scotland is the most affected area. In higher regions, up to three inches of soil could be found.
Aberdeen and Inverness could get an inch. Some white stuff will also fall in Edinburgh.
