The UK could see snow again this week, as a cold front enters the country in the next few days, the Met Office said.

The forecaster said rain with “some snow” will move across many areas on Thursday and Friday, but will most likely be in the north.

This comes as the weather pattern brings cold air from the north while moderate air continues to flow from the south, creating conditions suitable for sleet and snow.

Meanwhile, heavy and disturbing rain is expected to hit Scotland today with a yellow weather warning in effect until 9pm.

Up to 170 mm (6.7 inches) of rain is possible in the area today, increasing the risk of flooding. While strong winds are also expected.

The Met Office said in its warning that there was a “small possibility of homes and businesses being flooded”, which could lead to damage to buildings.

The worst affected areas will be Argyll, Lochaber and Wester Ross.

Are there more storms coming this year?

Following Storm Jocelyn last week, the UK will continue to see periods of wet and windy weather, especially in northern and western regions, according to the Met Office.

Long-term models suggest the weather in late January and early February could see some drier periods further south, while wet and windy weather remains possible to the north and west, forecasters added.

As for what this means for named storms, it’s too early to say when the next storm might be, but there is still a chance for more impactful weather as we move through the winter and meteorologically into spring.
