UK's weather forecast

Low pressure is predicted to bring freezing air and snowy conditions to northern parts of the UK over the next few days as January comes to an end. Forecasters have warned the brutal Arctic conditions are likely to be caused by a split in the polar vortex, which could herald in a "much colder" onslaught before winter ends. Scotland could see up to 19 inches (49cm) on Sunday, the last day of the month, according to the latest snow depth models from WXCHARTS.

North western parts of England including Cumbria and the outskirts of Northumberland could see 5 inches (13cm) on Friday, January 29. And Birmingham and Worcester in the Midlands could see 4 inches (12cm) later today. Temperatures could also plunge as low as -10C on Saturday, January 30 in central Scotland.

England will also shiver in northern regions during the rest of the week with freezing lows of 0C in Newcastle and North Yorkshire.

Southern regions are expected to be slightly milder at single figures over the coming days, with London averaging 1C.

Dr Claire Kennedy-Edwards, senior meteorologist at The Weather Company, warned the stratospheric polar vortex (SPV) at the end of this month could bring "a much colder end to winter" for Britain.

She told Express.co.uk: "We are expecting February to start mixed and relatively mild especially over southern regions of the UK but remaining colder than normal in the north. Our latest forecast signals colder conditions moving across the UK from the north and east of Europe as February progresses."

The forecast for this week said: "Unsettled conditions look likely to dominate for this period, with low pressure across the UK. Therefore, this should bring changeable weather to most of the country, with periods of rain, showers, and strong winds at times."

"While mild westerly and southwesterly winds are expected to be dominant for most of the period, occasional colder northerly winds are possible, bringing a chance of snowfall, likely confined to far northern parts."

The BBC's long-range forecast between Saturday, January 23 and Sunday, January 31, predicted northerly winds to push cold air into the UK.

The forecast said: "This weekend, as Storm Christoph moves away in Scandinavia, a colder air mass will feed into the UK from the north. This will lead to some lighter winds and sunnier skies at times. But also bring temperatures below average throughout the country."

"Despite the sunshine in some places, a few weak low pressure systems this weekend will bring a risk of lowland snow to western and southern areas. There will also be a band of snow likely on Sunday moving through southern Wales and England."

Netweather's Terry Scholey added freezing polar air is likely to bring more snow in the north during the last few days of January.

He said: "Apart from a few wintry showers across the North and East of Scotland, it should stay mostly dry after dark, although the South could see some rain, and mostly hill snow moving in towards morning."

"Lowest temperatures in a freshening East wind later in the night, around zero to 2C giving another frost in places."

"North and North East England may also be quite cold with mostly hill snow, as outbreaks rain and strengthening southerly or South-East winds 'sweep' northward across the country."

"Further South though it'll be milder with temperatures mostly in the range 4 to 9C. It remains unsettled and windy until Friday with a North/South split, as very cold polar and much milder Atlantic air continue to battle for supremacy."

"There'll be further rain and snow in the North, while the South sees occasional rain or showers. But during Friday most parts turn colder from the North, with a drier start to the weekend to follow when frosts and perhaps patches of freezing fog return."
