Forecasters are predicting potential sleet fall in Nottingham as winter starts to take hold. Currently, Apple's Weather app is reporting there is a likelihood that wintry conditions could hit the city next week, with conditions worsening midway through.
According to the latest data, sleet could possibly fall from Thursday to Sunday, as temperatures dip to -1C in this period. No snow has yet been predicted in the area, but an expert recently spoke of how the UK could expect it at the end of next week.
British Weather Services' Jim Dale, who claims he coined the Beast from the East almost 25 years ago, has said wintry weather will likely soon hit the Midlands. He is certain that a low pressure system from Norway - rather than Russia - will bring snowfall to the wider UK in just under a week's time.

Speaking to the Daily Express, Mr Dale said: "You can feel now it’s starting to get a bit colder, but it is just ordinary - I call that no man’s land which we will be in for the next five to six days yet. In Scandinavia, north of Norway, pressure is starting to go low - and that low elongates and will move towards us carrying the cloud with it, but also low pressure bringing precipitation which is bound to be snow. Scotland will be the first to taste this."
Mr Dale claimed the dates to be aware of are December 10-15. He added: "I think what’s happening is the low pressure zone is coming south and through the North Sea. We will see where it goes - whether it will affect the Midlands and south - which at the moment it probably will."
The BBC is reporting that next week will see temperatures plunge in Nottingham. From Wednesday December 7 it will be -2C at night and not get above 3C during the day with the weekend also cold. There is forecast to be sleet on December 14 and 15 in Nottingham.
