Large parts of central and northern England and Scotland witnessed snowfall yesterday. Along with gusts of up to 95mph in some places Storm Arwen brought with it freezing temperatures which ultimately culminated in wintry conditions across the UK. So, is the snow here to stay as we head into Christmas? Here’s your full UK long-range snow forecast to keep you up to date.
Temperatures are poised to continue to plummet over the next two weeks and with it, snow.
With that said, now is probably a good time as ever to bring out any thermals and scarves you have lying around at home as things are about to get much colder.
Below, Express.co.uk takes an in-depth look at where and when snow is predicted to fall again across the UK over the next couple of weeks.
We don’t have to wait long until snow will once again be appearing on many of our doorsteps as it’s predicted for large swathes of the UK today.
The Met Office has predicted snow for a time over parts of Scotland, along with wintry spells for north west England this morning before it moves south to parts of the Midlands and southern England this afternoon.
Temperatures for tonight are also ready to drop to as low as -4C in parts of northern England.
BBC Weather’s forecast says: “After Storm Arwen sweeps through the wind and showers will begin to ease into Sunday which will start cold with temperatures below freezing in places. Sunday will remain colder than average but will see some sunny spells through the day.”
Wednesday, December 1
Scotland will see a high chance of snow on Wednesday, December 1 by midday, according to maps from Netweather.
The charts show the northern half of the country will see wintry conditions set in, along with areas of north east England, around Newcastle.
Thursday, December 2
Netweather maps show a band of red, indicating a high chance of snow, along the eastern coastline of England from midnight on Thursday morning.
While this chance dissipates through the day, there remains a 40 to 50 percent chance of snow according to the forecaster.
According to the Met Office, wintry conditions will hit northeast areas of the UK and then move down further south as the day progresses.
The southeast could also expect potential snow showers towards the end of Thursday evening.

Two weeks time
WXCharts anticipates snow to begin to re-appear for parts of the UK once the first weekend of December is behind us.
From Monday, December 6 to Wednesday, December 8, snow is expected to fall once again across parts of Scotland and northern England, including Cumbria and Newcastle upon Tyne.
As we move into Thursday wintry conditions are prepared to move into areas of Wales and north west England for a time, lasting until around Friday morning.
Staying safe in the snow
Whilst snow brings undoubted joy for many families up and down the UK it’s important you remain safe during these wintry conditions.
When out and about make sure that you’re wearing appropriate clothing, such as a hat and gloves and a thick winter coat.
Be wary of slipping on ice or snow. If possible wear a pair of shoes that have an added level of grip and look out for patches of black ice on road surfaces.
Check ahead before travelling. If driving, plan in advance and look at the weather forecast for where you’re looking to get or if the roads you’ll be using have been gritted with salt.
