Netweather forecaster Ian Simpson said the weather next week would be “unstable”, the Daily Star reported. He added that snow “will generally be limited to higher ground”, while “northwest Britain will be the wettest”.

James Madden, a forecaster at Exacta Weather, predicted Britons would see “at least one or two notable wintry outbursts from late November through the first half of December”. He added: “Conditions look very favorable for a number of strong winter outbursts throughout January and into February, and they could be very prolonged in nature, for at least a week or two at a time.

“Widespread snow conditions are also likely to accompany these winter outbursts and put us in a winter wonderland on a number of occasions.”
