York and other areas of North Yorkshire are thought to see different levels of snowfall next week.

It comes as one of the latest Met Office forecasts has revealed the exact date and time it will arrive across the region.

This week, the forecasters said there is an “increasing chance of wintry hazards" as we head towards the weekend.

It comes as the UK is under the influence of “high pressure”, which is bringing “colder than average weather for the time of year.”

The Met Office said: “These cold and largely dry conditions will persist through much of this week, with areas to the south particularly cold compared to average.

“However, by the time we reach Sunday (January 14) a northerly airflow develops, which could increase the chances of wintry hazards for some.”

Speaking about the UK’s long-range outlook, Met Office meteorologist Aidan McGivern commented: “A cold front from the north towards the weekend will mark another change in the airmass for the UK, moving from something with a bit of an Atlantic influence to air that comes more directly from the Arctic.”

But when will there be snow where you are? Let’s take a look at the Met Office map.
