Weather experts have got their charts out to predict 15 days of snow set to hit Britain from later on this evening. However, the snow won’t reach parts of North Yorkshire, Manchester and Cheshire until the early hours of Christmas Eve before a real threat of another Beast from the East in the New Year.

Experts at Exacta Weather say a switch in a polar vortex will see the mercury drop and get perfect conditions for the white stuff. Christmas Day is currently looking like heavy rain for the rest of mainland Britain as Scotland will be the only place to see snow on December 25.

The white stuff is currently predicted to last until Monday, January 8, in Scotland, with weather maps showing a deep 25cm in parts of the Highlands.

Exacta Weather forecaster James Madden said there is a growing risk of another Sudden Stratospheric Warming (SSW) event which could result in the “threat of another Beast from the East in the New Year”. He said there is a “risk of a prolonged cold and snowy spell as we head into the early part of January”.

He told GB News: “There are now strong indications for a major SSW to occur during the early part of January and, if it does, many parts of the UK can expect to end up in the freezer with snow events and severe cold weather.”
