Wave of Arctic air to sweep across Western Europe bringing widespread snowfall this week

As we leave the weekend and enter a new working week, bitter cold shall spill out of Scandinavia drifting southwestwards across Germany, Low Countries, SE UK, France and Spain where snow and cold shall dominate. It’ll be cold across the rest of the UK too with widespread snow likely but the core of continental cold will only clip the southeast of England whereas further north high pressure keeps it briefly more settled before a series of Atlantic fronts sweep in bringing rain, sleet and snow. The fronts will impact France and Spain and with cold in place, snow is likely to become widespread and disruptive.
