UK weather maps show three-day snow deluge coming with 2cm falling per hour

Brits look set to face three consecutive snow days later this month, with the white stuff falling at both ends of the country.

Exacta Weather forecaster James Madden said previously: "It is now increasingly likely that we will see at least one to two notable wintry blasts from late November and into the first half of December."

Now, advanced weather modelling maps from WX Charts have identified when the first of these wintry blasts is coming. They show a massive snow front forming over the sea north of Scotland on November 22 before hitting Scotland early on November 23.

That morning is likely to see extreme flurries in the Scottish mountains, where snow is expected to fall at a rate of around 2cm per hour, as well as in Inverness and Aberdeen.

WX Charts' weather maps then show the snow front slaloming southward, hitting a few major cities along the way. By midday on Friday people in the northeast of England, north Wales and around Manchester could see some snow. The North Pennines and Yorkshire Dales are expected to see the most intense flurries in England, with snow falling at a rate of around 0.5-1cm per hour.

Snow is also expected in England on November 25, which is also when flurries should finally come to an end in Scotland. WX Charts' maps show snow falling at a rate of around 1-2cm per hour in parts of the Midlands.

Some much smaller patches of snow also appear as far south as Kent on November 25 – meaning Brits at both ends of the country will see snow over the course of the three days.

According to Madden, more intense snow blasts are expected to follow the one coming this month. He said: "Conditions do appear extremely favourable for a number of more potent wintry blasts to occur throughout January and into February, and these could turn out to be quite prolonged in nature, and for at least a week or two at a time.

"Widespread snowy conditions are also likely to accompany these wintry blasts and put us in a winter wonderland on a number of occasions, and they will prove hard to shift under consistent and extremely low temperatures of as low as -15C or more within this period."

Madden added that temperatures across December, January and February could all be below average. He previously explained these cold blasts could occur due to sudden stratospheric warming (SSW) – the same weather phenomenon that led to the Beast from the East in 2018.

SSW causes the polar vortex to weaken, meaning cold air from the stratosphere descends rapidly and impacts the jet stream. This can create what is called "blocking high pressure" over the North Atlantic and Scandinavia, preventing other weather systems from moving past it. In turn, it means the UK experiences extended periods of low temperatures – and in some cases the drop leads to massive downpours of snow.
