Ms Ayers added that wetter conditions would “stay across the far northwest”.

She continued: “It then looks like, at the moment, the most likely outcome is that we’ll see wetter, windier, milder weather quickly re-establish from the west, with a small chance that this could be preceded by some snow.

“But then there is a lower probability, around a 15 percent chance at the moment of a more unsettled and cold easterly flow setting up across the UK bringing some snow showers increasingly across eastern and southern areas.

“At the moment that is not the preferred solution.”
