Met Office forecast 

Met Office Deputy Chief Meteorologist Chris Bulmer said: “Snow showers from Sunday onwards are most likely to move inland from coasts exposed to northerly winds.

"The focus of snow showers will be over northern Scotland, but parts of the North Sea and Irish Sea coasts may also see some snow at times.

“There are a couple of weather systems for Tuesday and Wednesday which we are keeping an eye on that bring the potential for disruptive snow for some regions. With cold air firmly in place, any weather systems that move across the country next week will bringing mainly snowfall inland.

"Models are currently showing us a variety of options for both systems and we’ll be able to add more details to in the coming days.”
