UK weather forecast: ‘Several centimetres’ of SNOW expected in huge weekend WHITE OUT

The Met Office has issued warnings for wind, rain, snow and ice for Friday, Saturday and Monday. Reportedly, four inches of snow could batter the region of northern Scotland.

It comes as the UK is set to be decimated for a third weekend in a row with 75mph gales and torrential rain.

Met Office meteorologist Alex Deakin said: “A warning in force across Scotland for snow and ice through Saturday with strong winds.

“The snow showers packing in here that means blizzards will be particularly unpleasant.

“We could see several centimetres of snow building up on roads above three to four hundred metres by the end of the day.”

Speaking to the Mirror Online, Met Office Spokeswoman Nicola Maxey said the conditions, which could cause difficulty on higher routes, come off the back of Storms Ciara and Dennis.

She added: “We are in colder air so there’s always a chance rain showers could fall as snow, sleet or hail particularly in the north.

“It’s not unusual for this time of year.”

The UK has been hit by two named storms in the past few weeks which have caused devastation across the nation.

Storm Ciara followed by Storm Dennis caused widespread flooding and damage in various regions.

Parts of the country remain under “danger to life” flood warnings following Storm Dennis’ arrival.

Monday could will see another low pressure system devastate the UK.

The Met Office has said it is keeping a “close eye” on the weather front but that they are “uncertain” of its intensity or track.

But he said they are “pretty confident” it will bring another spell of wet and windy weather.

He also warned it could cause some “further issues” with the possibility of some snow in northern England.
