Snow forecast for parts of the UK amid fears over rising energy bills
Snow is forecast for parts of the UK this weekend, according to weather reports.
A sure sign that summer is definitely over, the white should fall and the temperatures will drop.
The news will come as a blow to Britons who were no doubt still holding out hope for a late Indian summer in September.
Snow forecast for parts of the UK
Meteorologists have made a snow forecast for parts of the country this weekend.
Two inches are expected to hit the mountains of Scotland, with 10 days of cool temperatures stretching ahead of us.
In addition to the snow, gales are also expected to hit the northeast, while rain will hit other parts of the country.
However, the good news is that adverse weather conditions are unlikely to cause “no disruption”.
The Met Office long-term forecast added that temperatures will be “rather chilly” at the end of the month.
Still, now seems like a good time to dig up those winter clothes.
Will the snow cause disruption?
Annie Shuttleworth from the Met Office confirmed: ‘From Monday there are signals of a few snow showers over the hills in Scotland, fairly typical for the time of year
“’We don’t expect snow in low areas. Or any disturbance thereof.
Heaten that we won’t be able to turn on the heating. Dumb energy bills ascend. As much as I like snow I hope not snow This year.
Netweather forecaster Terry Scholey predicted a ‘cold front’ approaching Northern Ireland and northwest Scotland.
He said it would bring “fresh winds and a bit of rain”.
Scholey added: “Friday likely sees a low pressure regime across Britain as cooler weather tries to move in from the North West.
“But it’s definitely going to be unstable and eventually cooler.”
Worries about energy bills
The cooler conditions are in stark contrast to the scorching temperatures Britons have endured over the summer.
This has seen millions of homes hit with a garden hose ban.
However, falling temperatures will no doubt cause concern among those struggling with energy bills during the cost of living crisis.
In fact, fears are spreading on social media following the snow forecast.
On Twitter, a Briton said:I wouldn’t mind a little frost and snow. But let’s hope that doesn’t happen.
“Too many people are struggling to pay their energy bills!” they added.
“I hope for a very mild winter because energy bills are very high,” said another.
A third also shared his fears: “Hate that we are not going to be able to put the heating on as much. Dumb energy bills ascend. As much as I like snow I hope not snow This year.”
