Weather forecast in the UK: Experts predict when UK will see snow as ‘little ice age’ ahead

Weather experts have predicted when the UK can expect to see snow as temperatures are expected to drop to around -11C next week.

WXCharts show that mercury could fall as low as -7C to -11C in the week of 23 November with the coldest conditions in northern Scotland.

However, cities as far south as Brighton have been predicted to see minus degrees by November 27, according to weather maps.

From November 24, places like the Grampians and the highlands can expect to see snow – before moving down into the country in the coming days, the Mirror reports.

By the end of the month, it is likely to cover parts of northern England and northern Wales.

There has not yet been a strong indication of chances of snow in the southwest.

Oliver Claydon, Met Office, told Express: “Long models show there’s a chance things will get a little colder by the middle of next week.

“The uncertainty is hinged around an area of ​​high pressure, if it is further west, it could pull a chance of snow from the north.”

James Madden, weather forecast for Exact Weather, told Expressen: “The cold is likely to win out before the end of November, giving an early taste of winter and the risk of snow.

“Declining solar activity means that the chances are great for a ‘small ice age’ winter this year with remarkable periods of cold and snow.

“We have great confidence that the coldest and wintest conditions since December 2010 will develop towards the end of the year.

“It can cause extreme cold temperatures and periods of widespread snow.”
