New weather map shows giant 600-mile wall of snow stretching from UK to Denmark

Snow may be well and truly on its way to the UK, with new radar data showing that a flurry from Denmark may be arriving at the start of December.

The snow forecast from experts at WX Charts shows a 600-mile long frosty blanket covering East Anglia and the Midlands, stretching all the way across the North Sea to Denmark.

The Met Office has warned that the mercury may not only drop below zero but reach -8C in parts of Scotland, while England and Wales may see temperatures fall below zero too.

Autumnal weather appears to be giving way to winter as conditions throughout the week are likely to be treacherous, while forecasters have told Brits to anticipate disruption.

David Oliver, a Met Office deputy chief meteorologist, explains: “After some rain on Monday, conditions will turn mainly dry in the south for a time before a very uncertain period on Thursday and Friday for the southern half of England and Wales.”

He added: “The weather models are highlighting several possible solutions from very wet to mainly dry, with a mainly dry picture the most probable outcome at present.

“However, some models include the prospect of an area of low pressure developing and moving in from the south or southwest. If this solution proves to be correct, we could see an area of warmer and moisture-laden air ‘bumping’ into the cold air further north. Along the boundary of the two air masses lies a zone across southern and central Britain where snowfall could develop fairly widely.

“Snow in any affected area is unlikely to be anything more than transient and short-lived, but it could lead to small totals and some disruption over a few hours before melting.”
