Temperatures have dropped over the past few weeks and it’s only getting colder. In fact, we could soon be headed for snow as the Arctic blast brings rain and freezing temperatures to the UK.
The Scottish Highlands between Fort Williams and Inverness could see snow as early as this Saturday. Meanwhile, the rest of the UK will see unsettled weather in the form of winds and heavy rain.
Forecasters predict that there could be some sunny spells in the middle of the week, with highs of 15 or 16 degrees celsius on Tuesday afternoon. But the wintry weather is likely to dominate.
BBC meteorologist Helen Willetts said: ‘There is uncertainty where the next batch of wind and rain will go as it moves in from the Atlantic on Wednesday and Thursday. Southern areas could see some significant rain. And then some strong winds, even some gales and more rain for the northern half of the country on Friday.’
The unpredictable weather is likely to continue into the festive period, and we might even get a white Christmas for the first time in 12 years.
