According to graphs, an ice-cold weather front is set to hit the UK on January 19. These ice-cold temperatures will intensify before leading to potential snow showers across the country on January 24. On January 24, charts show snow probability reaching between 50-60 percent in the Highlands of Scotland.

Outside of the Highlands, snow probability levels range between 35-40 percent.

In the north of England, snow probability levels will range between 25-30 percent.

In the Midlands and southern England, it reaches 20 percent in certain areas around Birmingham and in parts of East Anglia.

Further charts show snow probability levels increasing to 35-40 percent for the east Midlands.

In Scotland, however, those levels will rise to 60 percent on January 27.

Commenting on the backend of the period of January 27, the Met Office states: “Later in the period there remains a possibility that low pressure could move east, bringing strong winds and cold wintry showers to windward coasts.”

Prior to this potentially cold spell, the BBC’s long-range forecast predicts milder conditions.

For the period between, January 17-23, it states: “Next week low pressure is most likely from Scandinavia to eastern Europe with high pressure over western Europe.

“The high may become centred over the UK at times bringing a wetter and windier pattern to northern areas.

“Monday should be dry and settled over Northern Ireland, Wales and England. Fog is possible. Scotland will have occasional outbreaks of rain.

“Tuesday starts with a similar pattern but a more organised band of rain may move across Northern Ireland and Scotland later in the day.

“Wednesday continues with the drier, settled weather south of northern England. Thursday may see some drier conditions for Scotland and Northern Ireland.

“The settled conditions may persist into the weekend although some weather systems could clip the far north of the country.

“Temperatures next week should be around 1C above average.

“The weather pattern does become more uncertain during this week with the computer models suggesting different outcomes.

“It is possible the high pressure moves further to the south over the Azores.

“This would bring a wetter and windier pattern to the country.”
