Met Office predicts exact date -2c Arctic Blast will batter Brits in UK forecast

The Met Office has predicted the exact date snow will fall in the UK this month.

Weather forecasts show an Arctic Blast is set to batter Brits next week with ice-cold conditions.

Below freezing temperatures will set the scene for a flurry of the white stuff to blanket parts of the country just a few days later, the Express reports.

According to graphs, the mercury will drop to -2 from Wednesday and is set to intensify before leading to potential snow showers across the country at the start of the following week.

The likelihood of snowfall in each region of the UK has been illustrated by WXCharts with the Scottish Highlands unsurprisingly topping the odds.

On January 24, there is a 50% to 60% probability snow in the Highlands but there is still a chance those in the south of England will now be left out.

Outside of the Highlands, snow probability levels range between 35% to 40%.

In the Midlands and southern England, it reaches 20% in certain areas around Birmingham and in parts of East Anglia.

Britain has been embraced by a cold front this week with temperatures hanging in single figures as the question of snow hangs on the horizon.

Along with the cold temperatures, the country has experienced plenty of sunshine and a few patches of dense fog and frost in the mornings.

Looking ahead to next week, another cold snap is due to sweep across the country, with colder air sweeping in from the north.

Temperatures will tumble then as the weather takes a wintry turn after the weekend.

But on this side of it, the country shouldn’t expect any snow.

Despite temperatures plummeting as low as -5C in central England and Wales, no snow will fall over the weekend.

Widespread frost is expected across the south and some light rain in the far north of Scotland might fall, but it will be too mild to fall as snow.

Everywhere else will have dry, clear skies overnight and into Saturday.

Temperatures will remain cold, but over the weekend the weather will be cloudy with spells of sunny and bright weater throughout.

Whilst Sunday could see some strong winds across the north of Scotland with gusts of up to 40mph, the rest of the UK can expect settled conditions this weekend.
