It feels like we’ve just had quite a bit of frost and snow around Glasgow just this last month. Well, it appears that we will have to brave the cold again, as temperatures are expected to fall below zero overnight from Sunday to Monday (January 16).
Therefore, snow could cover the streets and lawns of Scotland as soon as three days from now. Glasgow is no exception, as showers will quickly turn to sleet and snow, yet the cold spell will not be here to stay. The weather should get warmer again by Thursday (January 19), so we only need to brave the brisk air for around three days.
Chief Meteorologist, Andy Page, said: “After what has already been a wet start to January, further wet and windy conditions will move across the UK this weekend. With the ground already saturated in parts of the UK this additional rainfall could bring disruption, particularly in the west. Check online to for the latest flood warnings in your area.”
The Met Office also advised that sheltered areas near glens or across high grounds in Scotland could see temperatures dip down to as low as -10 in snow covered areas.
Deputy Chief Meteorologist, Helen Caughey, said: “After a spell of wet and mild weather to start 2023, a brief cold spell will change the feel of our weather across the UK for a few days next week. As a northerly flow establishes, we’ll see temperatures decline with overnight frosts returning and the chance of wintry showers in the north. It will certainly feel cold in all regions too, with the northerly winds creating a notable windchill.”
It’s definitely best you allow extra time for your morning commute on Monday, and you can keep up with the latest weather forecasts here.
