Earlier this week swathes of the UK were issued Met Office weather warnings for snow and ice. Parts of southern England saw its first snow of 2020, with London also witnessing a light dusting.
When will it snow again?
According to Netweather, there will be some more snowfall over parts of the UK on Thursday night.
The forecast reads: “A cold night follows, with a widespread frost to start.
“The wintry showers in western Scotland will continue though, and thickening cloud from the west will slowly raise temperatures here.

“Rain with some sleet and snow over the hills will start to move up from the southwest into Ireland by midnight, getting into southwest England and Wales during the early hours.
“That’ll then spread its way northeast during Friday – bringing some heavy rain at times – particularly across Wales and Northwest England, and also the potential for some accumulating snow up over the high ground of northern England and Scotland.”
WXCHARTS maps, which use weather data from MetDesk, indicate more snow is potentially on the way this weekend.
The map shows areas most likely to see snowfall on Saturday are western Scotland, parts of northwest England, Wales and the southwest.
Snow is also on course to sweep over the UK early next week, according to the weather maps.
Following the departure of Storm Jorge, which is due to bring blustery winds and heavy rain this weekend, the Met Office forecast “some snow over hills and mountains” next week.
Met Office Deputy Chief Meteorologist, Dan Harris, said: “As Storm Jorge begins to weaken and clear later on Saturday we’ll see a trend back to slightly colder conditions, with some snow over hills and mountains in the north of the UK and a mixture of rain and hail showers in the south.
“Away from much of Scotland it’ll remain blustery on Sunday, although not quite as windy as Saturday.”
