The Met Office has predicted that their could be possible snow fall this December which will “not be confined to higher ground.”

The UK is set for wintry conditions with snow and sleet and colder weather over the next few days.

The Met Office said from Monday, 5 to 14 December, “On Monday, showers are likely for many, these heaviest and most frequent in the east and south, perhaps becoming persistent rain at times and possibly wintry over hills.

“Elsewhere largely cloudy, with drier, sunny spells particularly in the northwest. Continuing through the week, occasional showers are expected, these heaviest and most frequent along eastern coasts with a chance of longer spells of rain for southern UK.

“Showers may become wintry over higher ground, with a further risk of sleet over lower levels at times.

“A cold northerly flow is likely to develop, drawing temperatures below average and feeling even colder at times, particularly during fresh winds.

“This may bring some wintry weather, with an increased risk of overnight frost and perhaps snow showers, not confined to higher ground.”

They added that from 15 to 29 December, “Confidence is low for this period, but overall settled and relatively dry weather is more likely than stormy weather.

“At this time of year frost and fog are common, and the chance of these, along with below-normal temperatures and spells of wintry precipitation, is slightly higher than usual.

“Conversely, heavy rain and strong winds are less likely than in a typical December.”
