 Wednesday, October 20, 2021 



Scotland is likely to be hit by major snowfall this month with some flurries expected to arrive as early as Thursday. Polar air will reportedly sweep into the country on higher ground at the end of this week.

The wild weather has the possibility of turning sleet into snow and hit by the early hours of Thursday, and last all day until 10 pm. Parts of Scotland could also be blanketed by 6am next Sunday. Scottish cities can see snow fall extend up to Halloween this October. 

Aberdeen is currently 1-2 to see some snow fall by the end of this month, with Edinburgh at 4-5. Forecasters have warned an Arctic blast will send Britain into the chiller as the polar vortex is “knocked off kilter”. The UK is facing the worst winter storms in 13 years that could dump piles of snow across the country by the end of the month.

The Met Office’s long-range forecast said in a statement that temperatures are falling to below average for most, increasing the likelihood of snow over higher ground in the north. It was mentioned that more settled conditions are likely to develop for a time late in the week with some dry weather for most but the weather can also turn unsettled over the weekend as cloud, rain and stronger winds arrive from the west. 

It was mentioned that unsettled weather conditions are most likely to persist towards the end of October. Tourists and residents waiting to witness a White Christmas is most likely to see some snow on Christmas Day in Aberdeen this year. Heavy probability of snow also remains on Edinburgh and Glasgow.
