Met Office reacts to ‘snow bomb’ weather forecast
The Met Office has responded to claims about forecasts of a ‘snow bombhits Britain as temperatures drop.
It comes as forecasters issued their long-term weather forecasts, noting that a “polar vortex” could cause a deep freeze across the UK.
However, the met office has shared that all suggestions of a ‘freezer‘ are premature and have forecast no snowfall for February.
It says: “Changeable weather conditions are likely to bring intermittent heavy rainfall to the north and west. Slightly lighter rain or showers are expected at times in the south and east, interrupted by a drier and lighter period.”
Although the chances of snow in the next month are slim, the met office shared that the frigid temperatures could be coming to an end.
How will the weather be in the first half of the weekend?

The cold weather saw that UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) are extending the stage three cold alert for the fourth time due to the ongoing “night frosts”.
In recent nights, temperatures have dropped to -6 ° C in some areas of the country.
The warning was originally for January 16, but was extended to January 28.
