Hoping for Spring warmth? You may have to wait a little longer with snow in the forecast for Herefordshire next week.

Although it is impossible at this stage to predict where or how much snow will fall, one thing is almost certain, it’s about to get a lot colder.

The Met Office forecast for The Midlands goes into more detail by saying:

Saturday – Monday

Many areas staying settled, albeit often cloudy with some sunny intervals. Largely dry but isolated showers possible on Sunday and Monday. Feeling rather cold with more notable overnight frosts.

6th – 15th March: 

This period is expected to be characterised by winds from the north bringing cold conditions to most areas. 

This will most likely result in wintry showers across northern and eastern areas, these turning to more organised bands of snow at times. Under this regime, many other areas are likely to remain dry with some sunshine, the best of this across inland areas and in the south and west of the UK. 

During the later part of the period confidence decreases significantly, however there is a risk of some milder and wetter weather pushing into the south from the Atlantic, meaning spells of rain will become more likely across the country. 

Temperatures overall will be below average but may gradually trend up through the period.

Herefordshire’s very own Bryan Hicks has also provided an update on the potential for cold weather next week. He said:

“Good morning, some good outputs from different models in the past 24 hours if you like the colder weather and snow.

“We’re still just too far out to be accurate on snow locations at this stage but we’re likely to see some snow showers next week with maybe something a little bit more in some areas. 

“The main area for me to keep watching is the breakdown at the end of next week as the milder and wet weather tries to push in meeting up against the cold.

“Still a bit of uncertainty as to the lows location due to simply not being formed yet but these little lows popping up is where the chances lie of more organised spells of snow for a short time.

“A lot to be following over the next few days but expect things to start to change from Sunday with much colder day temperatures and deep night frosts.”
