Brits will see more snow on the way, according to new weather forecasts.

Independent forecasting group WXCharts details the exact dates Britons can expect to see flakes on the ground again — and it looks like it could be at the end of the month.

Friday 28 January and Saturday 29 January will see a large arctic weather formation drift down from the north and deposit snowfall across the north of Scotland, with some pockets also drifting down across the north of England as the weekend progresses.

A large patch of heavy snow will also hang over the North Sea to the east.

January has seen the white stuff mainly confined to a few areas, with foggy temperatures and some frosty mornings providing much of the backdrop for the first month of the year.

This looks set to continue in the meantime, and according to Nick Finnis from can be attributed to a high pressure phase, which tends to result in dry, consistent conditions for extended periods.

The senior forecaster writes in his latest blog: "High pressure looks to remain generally in control of our weather through the coming week, so for many it will remain mostly dry and settled with sunny days along with frost and fog at night."

"However, there will be fronts arriving by mid-week bringing a little rain to the north followed by a switch to a northerly flow across all parts on Wednesday and Thursday behind a weakening cold front sweeping south on Wednesday, bringing a glancing blow of cold arctic air across all parts."

National forecaster the Met Office expects Monday (17 January) to be mainly dry with variable cloud and sunny spells, with some winds and rain further in the north.

No weather warnings have been issued in the UK for this week.
