Other parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland may also see significant snow, though the likelihood is reduced.

On March 8, the charts suggest snow will move west into Northern Ireland, Wales and central England, with another snow band hitting the Scottish Highlands. maps indicate a 95-100 percent chance of snow over northern Wales and higher areas in Scotland.

The following day snow is expected to deluge northern and central England, with Yorkshire and Lancashire likely to be hit.

Inclement weather will continue into March 10, according to the snow risk charts, with a 95-100 percent chance of snow over the Scottish Highlands.

There is also a greater than 50 percent chance of snow for Northern Ireland, Wales and northern England.

The BBC’s long-range forecast added: “Heading through mid-March and beyond, high pressure is expected to recede farther into the Atlantic.

“This would allow a trough of low pressure to develop over western and north-western Europe, leading to more unsettled and changeable conditions.

“Similarly, temperatures will likely be quite variable as well, but there will be plenty of mild spells as fronts arrive followed by colder snaps between fronts.

“This means we should have a gradual increase in unsettled weather and day-to-day variability in precipitation and temperatures.”

Whilst both mild and colder spells will hit the forecast expects the former to slightly outnumber the milder.

It notes temperatures will not be comparable with the ‘Beast from the East’ seen in 2018.
