UK weather to remain unpredictable in coming few days, say weather forecasters

After days of enduring wet weather, Met Office warned of severe snowfall and icy conditions as up to 10 cms of snow settled overnight in Northern England across mountains in Cumbria, Northumbria and parts of Scotland.

Up to 5cm of snow was seen in Glasgow and Edinburgh in Scotland, with up to 4cm settling in Teesside and County Durham in northern England. Although, Lincolnshire and Yorkshire in the south, escaped the snowfall they were in for worse weather with rainfall and very cold temperatures.

The below 0C icy showers hit roads which made travel difficult for drivers. Temperatures dropped to -4C in eastern England and -7C in western Scotland, but Cornwall and west Wales areas enjoyed far warmer highs of 11C.

Brendan Jones, a meteorologist at MeteoGroup, the weather division of the Press Association, said on Monday morning the snow was continuing in the north. “In some areas further south the snow instead turned to rain, hitting very cold conditions causing some quite tricky conditions on the roads. But warmer air coming in from the west brought much milder temperatures in the west.”

The Met Office removed its severe weather warnings as temperatures rose drastically and the risk of cold and ice fell. But Brendan Jones said that the weather will continue to be unpredictable over the next couple of days. He said, “There could be some more showers and light snow, but the cold weather will stay. There is a risk of snow throughout the winter but it is likely Scotland will see another fall on Thursday.”

The Met Office had warned that this morning would be wet, which would put areas that are still seeing swollen rivers, under risk.
