Winter showers could hit parts of Britain again this weekend

A snow forecast shows that wintry showers could hit parts of Britain again this weekend.

The wintry weather is already taking the country by storm after the Met Office announced that Scotland could see up to 8 inches of snow tonight (Thursday).

However, it turns out that much of the country could wake up in the snow on Saturday or Sunday.

As a result, the Met Office has issued warnings of snow and rain in several areas of the UK.

“A group of heavy rains will penetrate the southwest by Friday evening, which can sometimes be severe enough to cause surface water to flood,” the Met Office said.

“During this time, 20 to 30 mm is likely across the region, and 40 to 50 mm in parts of Dartmoor and along the south coast of Cornwall.

“On Saturday morning, the rain band will move east, followed by organized bands with potentially heavy showers to Cornwall and Devon, which can lead to an increase in rainfall.”

Those in Wales and the West Midlands were able to see at least two inches of snow on Saturday.

Meanwhile, forecasters are warning that there could be up to 11 hours of snowfall over the weekend.

The Met Office added, “Approximately 3–7 cm of snow is possible down to low levels, with a potential of 10–15 cm above high ground (over 200–300 m), mainly in Wales and the West Midlands.

“Over the highest parts of Shropshire and Snowdonia there is a very small probability of maybe eight inches.”

The rain and snow have ravaged Britain all week.

As a result, there are currently 39 flood warnings and a further 170 warnings in England alone.

The Met Office said the UK had seen its most snow reliable period since late January 2019, when 20 weather stations in England recorded record snowfalls.

February: There is more snow coming

Forecasters say there could be more chances of snow in February.

However, the Met Office said it is likely to fall only in “northern parts” of the country.

Current signals for mid-February suggest that high pressure could be on the way – which could lead to cold north winds, above-average colder temperatures and outbreaks of wintry weather.
