After this week’s sprinkle of snowflakes, many are keen to know if more could be on the way, as January temperatures are set to continue to be low.

NN Weather posted on X, today (Wednesday January 10): “Too early for detail but there’s an increasing risk of high impact winter weather in the county around the middle of next week.

“Low pressure from the southwest engaging with cold northerly winds may bring the risk of disruptive snow for parts of England.”

The Met Office’s long range forecast – from January 14 to January 23 - for the UK also predicts a chance of snow.

"Temperatures remaining cold, and a marked wind chill especially in the north. There is risk of unsettled weather pushing in from the south through this period, which could lead to a band of snow and sleet where it meets the colder air across the country.

“Confidence is low with regards the timing of the arrival of any such disturbance, but there is an increasing risk of something potentially disruptive at some point in this period.”

Overnight frost and ice and also set to continue.
