Temperatures this week dropped below freezing as Britons across the country have been hit by the January freeze. However, there will be no respite going forward as a bitterly cold band of weather will hit the country next week.
In graphs produced by WX Charts, multiple areas across the UK could witness the arrival of snow from next Monday.
Such is the severe weather forecast, there is a risk of almost 30 inches of snow in large parts of Scotland next week.
Moreover, some graphs have predicted temperatures to plummet to as low as -5C (23F) for most of the country on Tuesday 28.
The Highlands of Scotland will see the worst of the weather while parts of Cumbria and north-west England will also be at risk of wintry showers from Monday 27 to Wednesday 29.
In conjunction with the graphs from WX Charts, the Met Office has warned of the potential “risk of snow” in the north and west towards the end of the month.
Commenting on the forecast into the final week of January, BBC Met Office meteorologist, Phil Avery warned snow will arrive in the UK as early as this Sunday.
He said: “An active front will be producing some wet and windy weather across all parts of the UK.
“It will take its time to clear on Sunday in the far southeast and Anglia.
Commenting on the weather forecast for Wednesday evening, Met Office meteorologist, Alex Deakin said: “Overall it stays dry and that continues into Thursday.
“In fact, much of the rest of this working week will be dry.
“For most often fairly drab as well as being dry we will start to see some changes.”
The dry weather will end at the weekend as many predict wet and windy showers to hit the country.
The blustery conditions will soon be replaced by an Atlantic front which will cause temperatures to plummet for most of the week.
As we finish the month, forecasters have also warned of the cold conditions continuing into February.
The Met Office said: “Through the first half of February, we are likely to see a north/south split continuing; with the north being more unsettled than the south.
“The heaviest of the rainfall and strongest winds are likely to be seen across the northwest.
“The south is more likely to see drier, brighter conditions with light winds.
“There is a potentially greater risk of frost and fog patches developing towards the south.
“During colder, showery interludes, any snow will most likely be over higher ground in the north, but it could fall to lower levels at times.
“Temperatures will remain close to or above average through the period, though will likely fluctuate as frontal systems pass through, especially in the north.”
