Weather to be cold - but snow unlikely

Have your say

TEMPERATURES will drop but a ‘major snowfall event’ looks unlikely this weekend, forecasters said today.

The weather is expected to be dry but cold this weekend with the possibility of snow showers on higher ground.

John Lee, forecaster for Meteogroup, said: “It’s going to be very cold with temperatures lower than average for the time of year. In general it looks fairly dry for South Yorkshire with the possibility of an isolated snow shower and a continuing risk of freezing fog overnight.”

Mr Lee said temperatures tomorrow would plummet to three degrees, and minus two overnight. On Sunday temperatures will be similar but possibly colder into Monday.

“Sunday still looks fairly dry,” he said. “Most of the snow showers are in Scotland. In general it looks dry but very cold.”

Mr Lee said on Monday rain would move south and there could be snow showers on higher ground. “It doesn’t look like there will be any major snowfall event but obviously these things change.”
