BBC Weather forecast: Another deluge of SNOW – where in the UK will be hit by snow?

North of the border will continue to face icy and wintery conditions with even more  showers after a relentless month of freezing conditions caused by the Beast from the East and

BBC weather forecast Helen Willetts warned a “frontal system” is also approaching the south of England, Wales and the Midlands, bringing patches of heavy showers throughout the day.

The BBC Weather forecaster said: “We’ve still got low pressure with us towards the north-west but it’s tending to what we call ‘fill’, which means the winds won’t be as strong and there won’t be as many showers.

“That said, we still do have a frontal system approaching from the South.

“So it’s a cold start this morning across England and Wales, frosty as well, but we should hang on to some lovely weather, dry sunny spells for the whole of northern England, much of north Wales, the north Midlands and eastern England.

“Further south of that, southern England, southern Wales and southern Midlands will find that the sunshine turns increasingly milky through the day.

“There’s patchy rain approaching the Channel Islands and the south west through the morning and then edges towards north.

“Ahead of that, as it is frosty, there is some ice on the cars and there could be a little bit of freezing fog around.

“Which we could also see in Northern Ireland where there is a frosty start.

“For Scotland, we have snow showers still and some ice. Still a wintery picture to watch out for the morning rush.

“Glasgow to Perth northwards snow showers pitching out through the day.”

Snow and ice are set to plague parts of Scotland until 10am today that could cause travel chaos to break out during the morning commute.

The Met Office  yellow warning reads: “Snow showers and icy stretches are likely to affect some roads and pavements.

“Some roads and railways are likely to be affected with longer journey times by road, bus and train services.

“In addition some injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces are possible.”

Met Office meteorologist Alex Deakin added: “The morning will be frost free in the south because the cloud and the breeze will be increasing and that means for the morning rush hour in parts of Devon and much of Cornwall it could be a bit soggy.

“There is still the potential for snow and ice across parts of northern Scotland, in the central zone of the country, there is the risk of some fog patches.

“But for many, it will be a dry and bright Friday morning with some sunshine around.

“Much of northern Britain will hang on to sunny spells, the showers will tend to fade in the far north, the fog should clear but the rain should spread in across the Midlands, much of South Wales and most of southern England by the end of the day.

“The rain will bring milder air with it but it could reach double digits, for most though single figures.”

The Met Office forecaster added that the band of rain will continue to push its way northwards that will continue into the weekend.

He went on: “The wet weather will continue to push its way northwards so Friday evening if you are heading out on the roads, certainly across southern portions of the UK, it looks rather soggy.

“The rain will continue to track northwards and as it hits the colder air, certainly over the hills of northern England, southern and central Scotland there could be a bit of snow for a time.

“It will be a milder night because the wet weather is bringing milder air, so a very different night temperature wise, some places in the south may stay in double digits.”
