Paul Michael Waite, director, said for the company that the weather for the coming weeks will be “mobile”, with “fluctuations from the mildest to the coldest will be the norm”.

He said: “A high pressure ridge will subside from the west on Wednesday, crushing the life of many downpours – but there will still be a scattering around.

“It will be another cold day, with a severe frost early and late. By Thursday, the Atlantic will start to get involved again, with a weather front coming in from the west.

“As it hits the cold air, snow is likely on the heights in particular, for the north of England and north Wales to the north.

“Much of this will likely turn to rain later on, but with colder air returning to Scotland quickly, the precipitation may well remain as snow, especially on the heights, further adding to the accumulations. already important here. “


Meanwhile, the UK Health Security Agency has issued an official “cold alert” for Greater Manchester regarding the risk of “heavy snow”.

The UKHSA, in a statement released today, said: “With the risk of severe cold, sleet and heavy snow in parts of the country, the UK Health Safety Agency is encouraging people to stay warm and to monitor the people most at risk of the effects of the cold.

“The Met Office is warning that the North East of England, the North West of England and the Yorkshire and Humber regions will experience cold weather from midnight on Tuesday January 4th until noon.”

In addition to Wednesday’s two weather warnings, the Met Office issued a yellow snow and ice warning for Friday.
