Exact date of 10 inch snow bomb realised with -10C icy storm set to engulf UK

An icy storm bringing snow, rain and sub-zero temperatures is set to engulf the UK one day next week, according to advanced weather modelling maps.

Some parts of the country are bracing for 10 or more inches of the white stuff, and temperatures dipping as low as -10C for many means it's once again time to fish out the big winter weather coats.

Luckily, Brits have a few days to prepare for the Arctic conditions, with the storm set to move in from the west next Sunday (February 20) and continuing into the following week.

According to forecaster WX Charts, almost all the of the country from south to north is expecting flurries of snow.

The Met Office also write in their long range weather forecast for February 16 to 25 that conditions will be "rather cold" and "wintry" as "cold spells could bring some brief periods of snow".

As per usual, according to WX Charts, the most afflicted region will be Scotland, where dumpings will lead to 10 or more inches settling in the Highlands on the Sunday.

However, it won't just be mountainous regions impacted with Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness and border regions all set for less severe flurries and one or two inches on the ground.

England will also be impacted on the Sunday and Monday.

The North East and North West will flurries bringing one or two centimetres, with snow also expected to fall but not settle in the South West and East Anglia.

WX Charts predict that Northern Ireland will too see one or two centimetres on February 20, with rural Wales having to wait until the Monday to see one centimetre settle.

For those not seeing snow, heavy rains are likely, as are freezing temperatures for everyone.

In the Scottish Highlands, the mercury will drop to -10C or lower on that Sunday, with northern parts of England and Northern Ireland also struggling to top 0C.

Further south it should be a few notches warmer, with highs of 3C to 4C forecast for the rest of England and Wales.
