The Met Office has given its verdict on a 'snow bomb' that's set to hit half of the UK in the lead up to Christmas.

A weather map reveals the exact date when a snow bomb will "split" the UK in two as temperatures take a nosedive. A weather chart created on Saturday (December 9) by WX Charts, using data from MetDesk, shows up to a centimetre of snow hitting Scotland on December 19.

The snow bomb is predicted to 'split Britain in half', with the southern part of the country staying dry while pockets of snow hit the north.

Temperatures in the UK on December 19 range from 0C-4C in Scotland and the north, according to the charts.

Looking ahead from December 15 to Christmas Eve on December 24, the Met Office says: "For most locations a continuing trend to more settled weather into the weekend as high pressure builds close to the southwest of the UK, though Scotland likely remaining in a more wet and windy regime with westerly winds."

"As such, the wettest weather likely across western high ground, mainly in Scotland and occasionally parts of Northern Ireland and northwest England.

"Settled conditions in the south with average temperatures and cloudy at times with some patchy light rain, mainly near western coasts and over hills."

"Clearer spells favoured the south and east but these also allowing potential for fog or frost overnight.

"The following week sees potential for high pressure to decline allowing a return to unsettled conditions and typically average temperatures, favouring the northwest for wettest and windiest conditions."

On the date of the snowfall, temperatures will remain milder elsewhere with 4C-8C expected across much of Wales, northern, central and eastern England and up to 10C along southern coasts, according to WX Charts.
