The Met Office says its forecasts are most accurate around five days before a particular date.

However, it does have a long-range forecast, which gives a broad a sense of what the weather will be like over the coming weeks.

Its latest long-range forecast, running from February 26 to March 11, there is a potential for snow in this period.

It reads: "During late February and early March, there is a higher than normal likelihood of northerly or easterly winds dominating, which would increase the chance of colder and drier than average conditions.

"Spells of milder and wetter weather are still likely to occur at times, especially in the south and southwest, with the potential for snow on the boundary between milder and colder air."
