By around 6pm, the snow will have cleared in most areas with the exception of parts of Northern Scotland.

According to the Met Office, snow could fall on Friday night.

Forecasting snow on Friday night, the British weather forecaster wrote: “Showers becoming confined to areas exposed to the Northwest through the evening, still falling as sleet or snow at times in the north and over hills.

“Frost under clear spells elsewhere. Cloudier in Northwest later with outbreaks of rain.”

The forecaster continued: [On Saturday] Windy with outbreaks of rain moving Southeastwards, although many Southern and Eastern parts of England remaining dry.

“Colder in the north later with snow showers for Scotland.”

According to the outlook on WX Charts, snow will drift South on Sunday to engulf Newcastle and the Northeast.

Monday will see even heavier snow in Northern Scotland, West of Inverness.

Some snow will remain, particularly in Western Scotland which will experience a heavy flurry on the Sunday evening

This pattern is likely to continue into Valentine’s Day with England and Wales largely clear from precipitation.

However, this dry spell won’t last with rain blowing in from the Atlantic by early Monday evening.

As a result there will be deep settled snow in North Western Scotland overnight. 

Lighter snow will spread to parts of North Wales and Northern England on Tuesday 15.

Conditions will remain relatively unchanged until Thursday 17 when heavy downpours are forecast.

By noon on Friday 18 Scotland, Northern Ireland and North West England will be engulfed in heavy snow.

Conditions are likely to stay the same until Sunday 20 when the snow is likely to clear somewhat.
