Could we be set for snowfall this weekend?

Southern England could become a wintry wonderland this weekend, with snowfall possible on Friday and Saturday.

Those living in northern Scotland are braced for freezing conditions – including snow – through Wednesday night and into Thursday, with strong winds then expected to bring the cold air down into the South.

Rain is the initial forecast for the region, but there may be snowfall late on Friday and into the weekend.

Sky News Weather Presenter Isobel Lang explained: “Before the cold air reaches southern Britain, a spell of strong winds and rain is forecast.

“However, there is a risk of snow late Friday and into Saturday, probably mainly over hills, as the wet weather clears from southern or southeast England and the cold air is drawn down into the system.”

Word of possible snow has seen bookies slash the odds on the UK seeing a white Christmas this year.

One bookmaker is offering odds of 4-5 on snow falling anywhere in the country on 25 December.
