UK weather map shows where it will snow this week and how many inches to expect

Snow hit the UK overnight and this morning and is expected to keep falling over the next five days.

There are currently yellow Met Office weather warnings in place for snow and ice in Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales, with another to come into force in England tomorrow.

The white stuff landed in northern England and parts of Scotland overnight. Around seven inches has been recorded on the ground at Loch Glascarnoch in the Highlands, and lows of -8C are expected in Britain overnight tonight.

The south of England also saw flurries this morning – but how many inches can you expect this week?

Advanced weather maps from WX Charts show exactly where snow is falling and how many inches will settle on the ground.

They show that flurries should continue in Scotland today (Monday, January 16) while the snow in northern England moves southward over the Midlands before fizzling out.

The most notable deposits today will be in the Highlands with 8in expected to settle in places. The odd centimetre is expected in the north of England as well as parts of the South West.

Tomorrow (Tuesday, January 17), WX Charts show that some of the flurries blanketing the Highlands are expected to move southward to cover most of Scotland – although not much is expected to settle in Lowland areas.

The evening will see significant snowfall in Northern Ireland, along the Welsh coast and in parts of the South West.

Those regions will see anywhere between one centimetre to one inch on the ground.

On Wednesday (January 18) another snow front is expected to sweep across the UK, with most areas expected to see some of the white stuff.

However, WX Charts don't think much will settle in England, predicting only the odd centimetre in northern or hilly regions.

The Scottish Highlands, however, will by now be blanketed, with 12in settling in some parts.

Thursday (January 19) will see snow in western regions, spanning from the Scottish coast into Wales, followed by a smattering on Friday (January 20) in northern and central England, but rain will be more likely in most places by the weekend.

An inch is expected in the Lake District by Friday, and significant deposits will remain in the Scottish Highlands, but WX Charts reckon most snow will have disappeared by the weekend.
