AFTER a week of unseasonably warm temperatures things have definitely taken a dip today (Tuesday).

But as many of us return to work following the Christmas break there is one question on everyone's mind – are we finally due some long-awaited snow?

Well the answer is that yes, many of us may well wake up tomorrow morning to a scattering.

According to the Met Office, the latest forecast for Shropshire reveals we could see some snow later on today and overnight.

A spokesperson said: "Any overnight rain and snow soon clearing to leave a largely dry day with plenty of sunshine. An increasing chance of scattered wintry flurries through the afternoon, especially across Shropshire and Herefordshire.

"Feeling much colder in the brisk north-westerly winds. Maximum Temperature 6 °C."

Overnight hail and snow showers are expected to continue in the west but most places will be staying dry leading to some frost, and into Wednesday "there remains a risk of wintry showers, these mostly in the west during the morning."

Things will become milder as we had towards the weekend with blustery wintry showers forecast for Friday, and wind and rain on Saturday.

Meanwhile, parts of the country have already experienced snow with many in Scotland waking up to some heavy snowfall covering their property, which has been followed up by weather warnings for wind and ice.
