UK: Snow this weekend? Up To A Month Of Rain In A Day And Gale Force Winds

Snow is set to return this weekend along with three inches of rain and gales in the South East as weather warnings come back.

Forecasters at the Met Office have warned of rain, hail, strong winds and wintry conditions at the end of this week.

The cold weather front is moving in from the Atlantic to provide a wintry blast before summer starts in May.

A mini-heatwave last week saw sizzling conditions of nearly 30C in London.

But now the mercury will plummet at the weekend to 5C.

Weather Outlook maps reveal that snow will hit Scotland and northern England this weekend.

By 9am on Saturday, central Scotland will be engulfed by the white stuff after it moves down from the north coast and it will linger all day.

But on Sunday, maps show that by 3pm intermittent snow will also hit the North Pennines in northern England and southern Scotland.

Heavy rain will also wash over the UK – soaking much of the country.

A yellow warning for rain has been issued for the Met Office on Sunday.

Met Office meteorologist John West said: “Towards the end of the week it is certainly possible that the cold weather will include hail, sleet showers and snow, especially on higher ground.

“The areas most at risk are the Lake District, North Pennines and Scottish Highlands, but we are not expecting a big impact.”

A flood and gale warning is also in force this weekend with up to two and a half inches of rain through Sunday night.

And next week a 10-day heatwave is expected.

Met Office said some of the showers could fall as hail as we get into the weekend because of colder air.

There’s even the chance of thunderstorms on Saturday for the north of the country, and temperatures will drop to 10C.

A spokesperson for The Weather Channel said: “Sunshine and showers will continue over the next couple of days, some of which may be heavy and thundery.

“Low pressure approaching the south west will then bring more widespread rain on Friday, with further outbreaks of rain over the weekend.

“Temperatures will drop to slightly below normal in a north-westerly wind, with the risk of a scattered grass frost in sheltered places on Friday night.”
