Aidan McGivern, a Met Office meteorologist, has said further snow showers are forecast for Wednesday across western Scotland and Northern Ireland, adding, “and by this stage the air cold enough that we could even see some snow coming down to lower levels, even as far south as the South West”.

Looking towards Thursday he said there was “a mild bump in the air across the Atlantic”

“How this interacts with the jet stream come Thursday is currently very uncertain,” he said.

“At the moment we think it is most likely to run across southern counties of the UK, and bump into the cold air further north.

“And that means that as we start off Thursday, we think it’s most likely that southern counties of England and South Wales will see a spell of rain.

“But north of the M4, there is the possibility of some temporary snowfall – not a great deal – it doesn’t at the moment look to be widespread, significant disruption. But there is the possibility of some snow in north London.

“It does clear away after lunchtime, and then brighter skies follow, but we will continue to see further wintry showers across northern England, Scotland and Northern Ireland, and further snowfall especially over the hills.”
