The first snow of the year may not be far away.

Mid January means the North East remains in the depths of winter with a huge cold snap currently developing across the region as well as parts of the wider UK.

With temperatures not leaving the single figures for a few days to come, any rain may fall as something more wintry and the Met Office has included snowfall as part of its forecast for the coming weeks.

When will it snow in Newcastle?

The Met Office's short term forecast, which covers daily forecasts for up to five days in advance is predicting flurries of snow over the coming days - including late into the weekend.

For Sunday, January 14 the forecast is expecting any potential rain to fall as something more solid due to the cold conditions.

The weather service predicts: "A good deal of sunny spells for most places, and turning increasingly cold, with showers turning to snow along windward coastal districts. A strengthening northerly wind making it feel bitterly cold, especially along the coast. Maximum temperature 3 °C."

Further snow showers are expected overnight as part of any precipitation as temperatures are expected to not go above 0°C.
