UK snow map shows exactly where next blizzard will strike before Christmas

The UK is set to be blasted by a huge blanket of snow yet again – just days after experts claimed the snowfall was finished.

Earlier this week, the Met Office revealed that the parts of the country will be hit by masses of warmer, wet weather from Monday.

Some parts of the country will even be contemplating cracking out the BBQ (not really!) as temperatures rocket to 11c from the freezing sub zero currently being experienced.

But now, according to the experts at Snow Forecast, the entire country will be hit by yet more snow as a blast of cold air hits from Russia.

The vast majority of Scotland, as well as the North, North West, Midlands and parts of London will be caked in white powdery snow from around 3pm on Sunday (December 18).

It is being estimated that it could be as deep as 10cm, possibly 15cm in some places – although it is expected to be 5cm in most areas.

Wales and Northern Ireland appear to escape with no snow fall is predicated for those areas at all.

And for those hoping that the blanket of snow will being the country to a standstill, we've got bad news for you.

It'll all be wrapped by around 6am on Monday (December 19).

The snow is forecast to once against return on Wednesday (December 21) to the Highlands of Scotland, parts of Wales and the Lake District – but the rest of the country will remain mild and wet for the rest of the year.

Earlier this week, Paul Gundersen, Met Office Chief Forecaster, said: “Over the last week, the UK has been held in a northerly airflow bringing cold, sometimes Arctic air, to the UK.

"We will still have this northerly influence to our weather patterns until the weekend, but then the cold conditions will lose exclusive dominance over the UK’s weather patterns and we will move into a regime where relatively mild and relatively cold conditions will vie for supremacy.

“We can expect changeable conditions with colder and milder air not too far away from our shores, but it does seem that the Atlantic ‘has woken up’ compared with recent days and will be a stronger influence, countering any further bouts of extreme cold conditions, although spells of further wintry weather remain possible through the rest of December.”
