Snowfall is predicted in Aylesbury this Saturday

Here's a more detailed explanation on why the Met Office believe we could be looking at consecutive snowy weekends: "An area of rain pushing in from the southwest through the early morning will readily turn to snow in places as it encounters colder air.

"There remains a good deal of uncertainty in how far north the rain and snow will get, before the band stalls and starts to move south again as it eases. 3-7 cm of snow is possible to low levels with the potential for 10-15 cm over high ground (above 200-300 m), mainly in Wales and the West Midlands. There is a very low chance of perhaps as much 20 cm over highest parts of the Shropshire and Snowdonia."
