Weather maps show 670-mile snow blanket from tip of Scotland to Kent coast

New weather maps show a snow blanket stretching more than 670 miles across the length of the UK in the next few weeks.

The country could be hit with snow at the end of the month, with multiple forecasters predicting wintry weather.

Maps from WXCharts and Netweather show snow from the tip of Scotland to the coast of Kent, approximately 674 miles.

A big freeze is forecast for next week with icy charts showing subzero temperatures across Scotland and northern England, with zero degrees at midday set to hit the south Midlands.

Exacta Weather forecaster James Madden said the UK can expect snowfall over this period.

He said: โ€œEven parts as far south as the Midlands, Central/Southern England will be brought into the mix.”

Parts of the north could get up to 5cm, with England set to be hit alongside Scotland, which could get 8cm of snow.

“The first major wintry and snowy blast of the season is now starting to build. There is now the ever-increasing and quite high risk that this wintry blast will strike,โ€ he said.

“The worst hit areas 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.

โ€œHowever, it is likely that we will see some of this snow reaching much lower levels of the country, as far south as the midlands, central and southern England.โ€

Air pressure charts show the brutal freeze heading down from the Arctic ultimately sending snow as far south as the bottom of Iraly and Croatia.

Both before and after the snow event Britain can expect more mild weather with temperatures quickly heading back to the early teens, possibly by Sunday.
