Met Office say several days coming up have high risk of freezing arctic snow

With UK temperatures edging lower and lower into single digits, widespread snow looks set to fall any day now.

Recently, WXCharts revealed that temperatures could plummet to -2C as we enter one of the coldest December months in living memory.

The Met Office has now issued a long-range forecast detailing how, when and where we will be seeing the white stuff in the coming days.

From November 14 to 23, this coming Sunday to Tuesday, they say that there is an "increasing chance of some wintry conditions, mainly over the higher ground in the north".

They added that there is a "slight risk" of snow falling in lower regions during this period.

Low-pressure systems are expected to "dominate" for those days, with weather "remaining changeable and autumnal particularly to the north" and rain and strong winds likely.

"Drier and brighter conditions are more likely in the south and southeast regions," they said.

For Wednesday November 24 to Wednesday December 8, the Met Office predict a "higher than normal chance of some wintry conditions, especially across the north".

There is also an extreme likelihood of north and northwesterly winds for the whole country, meaning that "overall temperatures are likely to be near or slightly below average".

As per the week before, they predict that "the most settled, driest and brightest conditions are predominantly across the south" whereas the north will see fierce winds bringing in the snow and rain.

Today we should see some sun in the south-east of England and northern regions of England and Scotland, meaning that we have at least one day to prepare for the snow.

Central and southern regions will be generally cloudy with outbreaks of drizzle.

Afternoon temperatures will peak in southern-central England at around 15C to 16C, higher than we've been seeing recently, with 13C and 12C elsewhere in England and Wales

Northern Ireland will hover around 11C, whereas Scotland may be the only place not to reach double figures at 9C.
