All 11 exact dates when new weather maps show snow being dumped on UK

From the north of Scotland to central England, large swathes of the UK will be hit by snow in the days to come, meteorologists have warned.

An analysis by WXCharts pinpoints exactly where the nation will be bombarded – with heavy rains and plummeting temperatures also on the cards.

Meanwhile the Met Office’s long-range forecast has suggested cold air will bring with it strong winds and wintry showers in northern and eastern areas.

WXCharts predicts snowfall will be recorded somewhere in Great Britain on 11 days between now and December 5.

On November 23, people living in the far north of Scotland – including the ski resort of Aviemore – can expect up to a centimetre of snow per hour in some places.

The following day, the country’s far north-west will see up to two centimetres an hour falling, maps claim.

On November 25, one centimetre an hour will once again fall in parts of north-eastern Scotland, continuing throughout the night into November 26.

Consequently the area is likely to be carpeted with several inches of snow, according to WXCharts analysis.

Snow will continue to fall in the area on November 27, albeit much more lightly before a spell of much drier weather.

The weather will take a turn for the worse at the turn of the month, with two centimetres an hour of snow likely just south of Inverness and in the far north-west once again on December 1.

“Into next week, an east-west split in weather conditions is most likely.”

The west would have more chance of seeing milder conditions, consisting of cloud with patchy rain and drizzle, while further east, colder, drier and brighter conditions with blustery wintry showers would likely persist, the forecast states.

It adds: “It is uncertain how prolonged this cold spell with be, but likely that through this period, milder, more unsettled conditions from the west will gradually replace the colder air.”

The Met Office has also published its forecast for December 5 to December 19, stating: “The most likely scenario through early December is for predominantly changeable weather, with spells of rain or showers and strong winds interspersed by short-lived drier, brighter periods, although there is a lower chance of more prolonged settled conditions developing.

Rainfall amounts were likely to be near or above average, with the heaviest, most persistent, rain likely to be in the north-west at first, perhaps shifting further south towards mid-December.

The forecast added: “Temperatures will most likely be near or a little above average for the period as a whole.

“Although some colder interludes are possible.

“As is normal in December, occasional frost and wintry showers are likely at times.”

Heavy snowfall of two centimetres an hour are likely across much of northern Scotland on December 2, with much of northern England, from Newcastle to Manchester, set for snows of up to two centimetres an hour on December 3.

Snow is also likely in parts of north-western Scotland on December 4.

The Met Office’s long-range forecast covering November 25 to December 4 states: “The early part of this period sees colder air continue to sink south, likely reaching all parts of the UK by the end of the weekend, perhaps with the exception of the far southwest.

“Wintry showers, and strong winds are likely into northern and eastern areas, with the risk of overnight frosts increasing through the weekend.
