A giant snow bomb is on course to blast the UK in the coming weeks, just as the clear up following two chaotic storms gets underway.

Britain saw power cuts, flooding and damage to buildings over the last week after two storms caused chaos and claimed four lives. Storm Isha saw gusts of up to 107mph, while Storm Jocelyn saw winds of 97mph. But while most of the UK experienced wind and rain over the last week, snow could be set to fall as February rolls around.

According to new weather maps, Monday, February 5 could bring cooler temperatures and snowfall in some parts of the country. The maps from WXCharts show snow falling as far south as London, with other cities like Manchester and Birmingham also at risk, with Scotland remaining dry while the south west of England is drenched by torrential rain.

Maps published on WX Charts – compiled using data from the Metdesk – show that on Monday, February 5 at 6pm, the mercury will plummet to as low as -5C in parts of Scotland.

Meanwhile it will dip to freezing 0C in Wales, the Midlands and the east of England. However, it will reach 10C in Plymouth, and 3C in the Shetland Islands.

A ‘winter overview’ map reveals that when the snow bomb blasts into Britain, parts of the north of Scotland will already have accumulated 10cm of snow, while up to two centimetres per hour will fall across the north of England and the Midlands.

Weather expert James Madden, told the Daily Star: “Our projections are consistently showing up the potential for another temporary snow event towards the end of the working week and into next weekend that could bring further heavy snow to the north, Scotland, and potentially to parts of northern England, Wales and Northern Ireland/Ireland within this period.”

He added: “This is only likely to be a passing snow event for later next week and not the return of the cold and snow proper. However, we do expect some major snow and cold weather to start gaining significant ground to return for in and around February 2 and 3, possibly a little earlier or later depending on a small standard deviation for any timeline changes between now and then.”

He said that temperatures could plummet as cold snaps from Greenland hit the country. Temperatures in Scotland on February 6 are set to drop to -4C.

Looking towards the end of January, the Met Office stated: “Temperatures are expected to be milder than average overall, although this doesn’t preclude shorter, colder spells at times, with a risk of overnight frost and fog accompanying more settled conditions.”

Currently, there is an increased chance of cold spells across the UK compared to average temperatures for this time of year.

Senior meteorologist and social commentator Jim Dale told GB News that “winter is not quite finished yet” as “continental air” – dry air near the surface while maritime air masses are moist – is set to dominate in February.
