According to charts, parts of northern England and Scotland will see a deluge on December 27. Such is the heavy band of weather expected to sweep in from the Atlantic, charts predict Scotland may see over 3cm of snow an hour on December 27. Snow depth graphs from WXCharts show Scotland receiving up to 10cm the Monday after Christmas.
However, the Northeast of England may experience up to 8cm of snow, charts show.
Other parts of England will also see a small sprinkling of snow but in Wales, there could be as much as 8cm on December 27.
The Met Office said between December 22-31 said: “Towards the middle of this period the threat of rain or wintery conditions increases, particularly towards the south and southwest. “
Such is the severe weather pattern expected to hit the UK, forecasters have warned another storm may hit the country.
British Weather Services meteorologist Jim Dale said the UK is on course for one final storm of 2021.
He told The Sun: “We are expecting one more major storm this month which will set the trend for coming months.
“We expect five to six storms to hit through the winter period which could be severe enough to warrant naming.”
If a new storm materialises it will likely be called Storm Corrie, and will come after Storm Barra and Arwen battered the country this year.
