    Brits are being warned to expect more ‘cold snaps’ by the Met Office after reports of a ‘snow bomb’ looking to hit the UK next month.

    Areas of Britain have already had a taste of snow this week but more could soon be on the way.

    Brits are currently facing cold temperatures and the reports of snowfall next month means the freezing conditions are here to stay.

    The UK Health Security Agency placed the UK in their level three Cold weather alert last week and have now extended it to January 25 as the "severe cold weather" shows no signs of moving on.

    Met Office meteorologist Dan Stroud warned "there's certainly the possibility of further cold snaps" but we will get a glimpse of some rising temperatures in January.

    Speaking to the Mirror, he said: "There is still the risk of further periods of cold weather but at the moment we're kind of expecting high pressure to be centred towards the southwest of the UK as we move towards the end of January.

    "So temperatures generally higher than what we are at the moment with some spells of some wet and windy weather across the west of Scotland."

    Despite predictions of slightly warmer climates, forecasters are warning Brits it will be short lived as a ‘snow bomb’ will arrive in February.

    Weather maps from the WX Charts predict the cold snap heading our way, which the Daily Star reported earlier this week.

    The forecast highlighted a blizzard to Northern Ireland and parts of North Scotland on the evening of Thursday, February 2.

    Then Northern England and most of Scotland will have to brace the snowy storm on Friday morning (February 3).

    Mr Stroud believes it is too early for the Met Office to accurately predict the coming snowfall but identified those areas at risk.

    He added: "The greatest risk for any snow is going to be in the high ground of northern England and Scotland", adding that this is "very typical of an average British winter.”
