Arctic blast arrives as Met Office updates snow forecast

Rob George 2nd Nov, 2021   0

AFTER October departed with torrential downpours and strong winds, a four-day ‘arctic blast’ is on the way, the Met Office has revealed.

The possibility of snow later this month has also not been ruled out as the mercury is set to dip in the coming days and the week ahead.

After motorists tackled their first frozen windscreens for a while this morning, temperatures are set to tumble into the weekend with rain set to arrive from the west at the weekend, meaning Bonfire Night celebrations could become a damp squib.

Blustery showers are likely in the far north and northeast early next week, but these will quickly clear to leave plenty of fine, dry weather with long spells of sunshine.

Rain and thicker cloud will then steadily encroach from the west and northwest. The driest and brightest weather is likely to be in the southeast where rain bands will often be weak.

Temperatures generally around average thorough this period, although brief cold spells possible.

Wintery showers could increase from November 16 onwards from the north and northwest, initially over higher ground but also a low risk at lower levels later in the month.

While there is little sign of prolonged, widespread settled weather, conditions are likely to be less stormy and windy.

Where there are more settled spells, frost and fog are increasingly likely, with temperatures slightly colder than average.
