Snow UK warning: Will it snow today? What is the UK weather forecast?


Forecasters have again issued a series of yellow weather warnings which affect large areas of the country.

The first is a warning for rain and wind which affects south-west England and kicks in just after midnight on Tuesday and continues until 10am.

In his forecast, the Met Office chief forecaster warns that “20mm of rain is possible within 2-3 hours in some places” with flooding predicted on the roads.

But it is not just rain that could hit the UK today, with a number of yellow warnings for also being issued by the Met Office.

Where will it snow today?

Areas affected by a snow and ice weather warning which begins at 2am and ends at 10am include parts of Northern Ireland – such as County Antrim, County Armagh, including County Londonderry.

In Scotland, police have issued a warning for motorists to drive with caution as a yellow rain and snow warning begins.

Rain and snow is expected to affect much of southern, western and central Scotland, including the M74, with gales also forecast.

The west of the country is also likely to see snow today – as the chilly front moves eastwards across the UK.

Cumbria, on the border with Scotland, will almost certainly see snow today with a 95 percent snow risk recorded by NetWeather.

Parts of Wales may see snowfall, with a 27 percent risk today – along with Birmingham.

Liverpool should be spared a white dusting today according to NetWeather – but maps from Windy suggest the western city could be hit after all.

London is unlikely to see snow today, with NetWeather suggesting only a 14 percent chance in the capital on Tuesday.

Between 5cm and 15cm of snow is expected to fall on higher ground over 300 metres.

And temperatures overnight are likely to fall below freezing and gales are expected on the western coast.

Met office weatherman Craig Snell said: “Unfortunately it’s not shaping up to be a great half term.

“Most of us will see snow and rain, and there’s going to be a lot of wind.

“It’s going to feel very cold for all of us. Even if the temperatures don’t hit freezing, the wind will make it feel like we’re in the minuses.

“People need to be careful on the roads and make allowances for long journeys.”
