Exact date Britain set to be blanketed in snow as freezing temperatures bite

New weather maps show the exact date Britain can expect teeth-chattering temperatures to strike bringing an Arctic blast from the north.

November 25 will see an 80 to 90 percent chance of snow on the high ground in Scotland with more on the way on December 2 which could see depths of 25 to 30cm.

Elsewhere in the country the probability of snow remains high for the end of November with wintry flurries possible even as far south as Devon and Cornwall, according to maps from WXCharts.

The data shows snow could be coming down at a rate of around 2cm per hour in the Midlands and the north of England.

Exacta Weather forecaster James Madden said “one to two” wintry blasts could be on the cards towards the end of November and start of December. He said: “The worst hit areas also look likely to be across the northern half of the country for this period and this does also include snow to lower levels in these parts too.

“However, as we get nearer the time, it is now also becoming increasingly likely that we will see some of this snow reaching some much lower levels of the country, and even parts as far south as the Midlands, Central/Southern England will be brought into the mix for snow within this period too.”

The Met Office meanwhile has said there’s a possibility of “showers of a wintry flavour”.

Speaking of the forecast for the coming weeks meteorologist Greg Dewhurst said bitter northerly wind will cause much colder conditions and the first significant snow flurries of this winter.

He said that through the second half of next week – typically across the northern half of the UK – some sleet and snow showers are possible before things get increasingly bitter.

The Daily Mirror reports he said: “There are signs that, as we head towards the end of next week into the weekend, we could see some wintry showers to kick off in the northern half of the UK as winds turn a bit more northerly for a time.”

In its long range forecast for early December the Met Office said conditions would be “predominantly changeable” and added: “As is normal in December, occasional frost and wintry showers are likely at times.”
