SCOTLAND could see a fresh batch of snow later this month, according to weather charts.

WXCharts’ forecast maps indicate that cold polar air will bring up to 114 hours of snow to parts of central and northern Scotland.

The maps suggest parts of the Highlands will see non-stop snow and that up to 10cm could fall between March 27 and March 31.

The Met Office, meanwhile, predicts a dry but cold end to March.

Its forecast reads: "Dry for most places at first on Thursday (March 21), but rain will quickly spread from the northwest across all areas. The heaviest and most persistent rain will be in the northwest, with relatively little rain reaching the southeast.

"Strong winds are also expected, particularly along coasts. Through Friday and the weekend, northwesterly winds will bring a mixture of sunny spells and showers, some of these heavy.

"A drier spell may develop later in the weekend with temperatures likely to be below normal for many areas. Into the following week, more unsettled conditions will probably develop across parts of the UK, these most likely to affect southern areas. Northern areas are more likely to be dry but also colder."
