SNOW could be seen for the first time this winter next week – but it’s “unlikely” to settle.

Twitter-based forecaster Dorset Snow said that GFS weather charts had shown a risk of "some wintry precipitation” early next week.

Dorset Snow said: “At seven days range it’s unlikely to verify, but about as much hope as we’ve had all winter. Settling snow very unlikely.”

He said that the signs were there could be a “brief cool snap.”

Bournemouth Airport was named one of the coldest places in the UK on Monday night.

Wimborne-based forecaster Wessex Weather said temperatures plunged to -4.4C.

According to the Met Office, the weather over the next few days will be cloudy with temperatures reaching 11C on Monday.
