Met Office issues statement after reports of snow in forecast
The Met Office has issued a statement in response to reports of potential snowfall in the UK in the coming weeks.
Forecasters have said that we are now heading into a period where there will be a noticeable change in the weather.
And they said there was a “real chance” of snow falling, Birmingham Live reports.
Senior Met Office meteorologist Greg Dewhurst said: “We are now entering the time of year when the change in conditions is really noticeable.
“As we move into October it will definitely be colder. Although snow is not expected imminently, there is still a real chance in the weeks to come. It is not uncommon at this time of year.
“We have seen snow in Scotland before, and we could see it in other parts of the UK further afield.”
Aidan Given of the Met Office added: “With the Atlantic weather now in place, we can expect very changeable weather throughout the week. There will be wind and rain, but also periods of rain and sun sometimes. “
Despite the statement, there will be no snow in Nottingham imminently as forecast.
The weather for this weekend is devastating – with heavy rain forecast for Saturday evening.
Sunday, meanwhile, will be sunny with some cloudy spells, and it will be the same until next week.
The Met Office has also warned of the risk of Hurricane Sam hitting the UK next week, as temperatures are expected to drop and rain and wind appear increasingly likely.
