Weather charts and the Met Office have pinpointed the days that snow is forecast to hit County Durham and Darlington this month. 

After a moderately mild end to January and February, albeit with several storms that brought high winds and torrential rain, the Met Office and weather maps site WX Charts have suggested the days in February that it could snow. 

While it's meant to reach lows of one degree next Wednesday (February 7), it won't be until Thursday (February 8) until WX Charts has pinpointed that snow could arrive.

And the Met Office has backed this up, with a spokesperson for the weather forecaster saying: "It looks to be an unsettled time as we look ahead.

"It turns colder across northern areas with showers, which will turn wintry at times, especially over higher ground but potentially to lower levels too as the week progresses.

"There is a chance of wintry conditions developing more widely through the second half of next week as rain pushes up from the south for a time, but there is still uncertainty about the details of this."

Here is what the weather looks like moving forward for County Durham and Darlington:

This Evening and Tonight: A dry night for many, some clear skies in the east but becoming increasingly cloudy by dawn. As cloud thickens, greater chance of seeing some patchy rain and drizzle on western hills. Remaining breezy throughout, especially over high ground. Minimum temperature 4 °C.

Sunday: Cloudy with outbreaks of rain and drizzle spreading north and east through the day, heavy over the Pennines. Breezy across the region, with gales over high ground in the west. Maximum temperature 12 °C.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday: Windy and cloudy with outbreaks of rain and drizzle, especially in the west on Monday, becoming more widespread on Tuesday. Drier and brighter on Wednesday, with winds easing. Feeling colder.

Thursday 8 Feb - Saturday 17 Feb: Initially mainly cloudy, dry and cold across northern areas, milder in the south with rain increasing from the southwest.

Rain pushing back north through Thursday with snow for a time across the northern edge of this likely with accumulations over high ground but also a transient threat at lower levels.

Remaining unsettled Friday with further wind and rain likely, again wintry on the northern edge of this. Through the weekend a change toward a north or north-westerly wind brings cold conditions spreading across the UK with wintry showers across coasts by Sunday but clearer inland as rain clears southeast.

A further change is expected mid-week as high pressure becomes increasingly dominant. Temperatures potentially recover to average with this, though any prolonged clear skies are liable to bring localised frosts and fog risk.
