Weather forecast: Freezing temperatures, heavy snowfall in January-end

The weekend will have mild temperatures but thereafter a cold snap is warned for United Kingdom. Towards the end of January the temperatures will further dip, said Met Office.

A weather report from the Met office revealed Saturday and Sunday the temperatures would be between 8C and 9C but it will fall to about 3.5C in couple of weeks, below the January average.

According to Sky weather producer Joanna Robinson the northern Scotland will get colder air later this month and there could be showers too, making the region more wintry.

Robinson added, “Sunday night will bring a widespread frost to the north of the UK, with icy stretches possible.”

It is learned even though Monday will be relatively colder, but the next two days will see a bit recovery in temperatures again.

It is still not known how much snow the region will get even though the end of January will see colder temperatures.

Met Office spokesman said the colder spells and winteriness in the north is not exceptional for this time of year.

The spokesman added later part of January will be colder but forecast uncertainty is on the card about where any snow will fall.

“The week beginning Monday 21 January, there is a stronger signal of it getting colder, that would increase the risk of snow across the UK,” mentioned the Met Office spokesman.

It is learned the weather pattern is same as last year and to bring freezing temperatures as well as heavy snow.
