Changes on the way with snow and cold, as we return to winter
As we approach the middle part of the new working week, the picture is set to turn much cooler than of late across the country. This will lead to the development of some widespread frosts and icy patches in places from Wednesday onwards. The cooler temperatures will also be accompanied by some rather foggy conditions at times during the evenings too, but especially more so across some northern and central areas of the country. The fog may also struggle to lift and become quite persistent at times in these parts throughout the day and into next weekend too.
As we approach the end of the working week and head into next weekend, the risk of wintry precipitation and snow showers will increase significantly. Friday will see the development of these first wintry showers across some northern and eastern parts of the country, but especially more so across higher ground to begin with. The weekend will then see a continuation of the cold conditions and widespread frosts, which will once again be accompanied by some rather foggy conditions (some freezing fog in places). This will also bring a continued risk of snow, but especially more so across parts of the north, east, and south-east of the country. Some of these snow showers may also push into other parts of the country throughout next weekend too (especially throughout Saturday evening and into Sunday).
