By Friday morning, up to eight inches of snow has been forecast in the Scottish Highlands by STV weather presenter Sean Batty. This should time out nicely for the West Alabama Christmas Parade tomorrow night. The likelihood of snow will increase in the evening and night as temperatures fall between -2 and +1 degrees.

This evening, expect a continued chance for showers and possibly even a thunderstorm before midnight. Light rain is generally less likely to turn to snow than heavier rain in this way, because less moisture is available for evaporative cooling to take place. It's going to be a very mild day for early December.

Temperatures are most likely to decrease in the coming days, bringing some relief with it, following a few hot days in the city. Clouds will also linger and this will limit warming each day.

But things will begin to get more interesting - and challenging for forecasters - on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Met √Čireann is warning that frost and icy patches on untreated surfaces are to be expected.

Snow showers will vary in strength throughout the period, between light flurries and heavier snow bands.

However, there are two big caveats to keep in mind about the cold air about to invade the East Coast, so don't panic quite yet.

The UK is an island surrounded by relatively warm water, which means that in winter, temperatures in coastal areas are kept slightly higher than further inland.

After this storm moves away, the snow focus shifts to the lake-effect variety, which will hit the typical snow belt areas of Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and New York State with significant snowfall. Confidence is high for snow to be flying in the area.

The coldest night of 2017 so far was January 30 when Braemar, Aberdeenshire, fell as low as -10.1C (13.8F).

Clouds will return Monday night, but there will be scant chance of any showers.
