2 min read

Snow looks set to make a shock return to the UK next week with the Met Office warning of "wintry showers" to come.

Advanced weather modelling maps from WX Charts have highlighted when and where Brits can expect the white stuff.

They show that from Sunday (April 23) flurries will start in northern Scotland, particularly the Highland regions in and around Aberdeen and Inverness.

There, WX Charts data shows some 9cm settling on the ground in more elevated places.

Into Monday (April 24), the wintry front is expected to move southward, covering the rest of Scotland and breaching northern parts of England.

The Lake District, North Pennines and Yorkshire Dales all look set to see some flurries, although nothing as intense as northern Scotland.

WX Charts' data doesn't show any snow settling on the ground in England.

By Tuesday (April 25) the vast majority of the snow should have moved off.

The Met Office also says snow looks to be on the way this weekend and into next week.

Latest forecasts from the national weather agency warn of rainy showers in southern regions this Sunday and snowy ones in the north.

The occasional pockets of snow are then expected to continue into Tuesday.

The Met Office writes: "On Tuesday, patchy cloud and sunshine for most with a few showers, wintry in the far northeast and for the Northern Isles.

"Chance of some thicker cloud with more persistent rain into the southwest later.

"Light winds again but remaining moderate to strong in the far northeast. Cold for many by day, especially the north with fairly overnight frost."

Netweather also says it will be a chilly start to next week with the possibility of snow.

Forecaster Ian Simpson said: "This week will see persistent high pressure to the north-west of the UK, which has been a recurring feature of this spring so far.

"It looks likely that the week will start off on the cold side, especially in the north, with a northerly airflow, which has potential to bring wintry showers to low levels in northern Scotland, and some overnight frosts in the north.

"Some rain or showers may also head southwards through eastern Scotland and eastern England for a time."
