Region: Orkney & Shetland

Warning

Heavy snow showers will continue through Thursday and Friday, although perhaps more of sleet and hail near some coasts. Over exposed high ground, snow will drift in the strong winds.Travel delays on roads are likely, as are public transport cancellations. There is a chance of power cuts, while services such as mobile phone coverage may be affected. A few rural communities may become cut off. In addition some roads and pavements will turn icy, increasing the chances of accidents or injuries.

Chief Forecaster

Snow showers will be heaviest and most frequent across western Scotland, where high ground is likely to see a further 10-20 cm building up above 200-300 metres. There may also be more than 15 cm over the high ground of Northern Ireland and northern England. At low levels, parts of the warning area will see 3-10 cm of snow, with some places near the west coast seeing very little. Showers will be accompanied by hail and lightning at times, particularly across western Scotland. Here, in particular, there is potential for disruption to power supplies from lightning strikes.Strong winds bring the potential for temporary blizzard conditions and drifting of lying snow, mainly over high ground.

Region: Strathclyde

Warning

A spell of snow, persistent and possibly heavy, is expected during Wednesday night and early Thursday. The snow is expected to clear east before dawn on Thursday.Travel delays are possible on roads with a risk that some vehicles and passengers could become stranded. Delays or cancellations are possible to rail and air travel. Some rural communities could become cut off. Power cuts may occur and other services, such as mobile phone, may be affected.This warning has been updated to change the warning area by pulling the northern boundary south across Scotland and including the whole of Northern Ireland, whilst also shortening its validity time to 0600 on Thursday morning.

Chief Forecaster

Warning

Strong winds will affect parts of the UK early on Thursday.

Region: North East England

Warning

Heavy snow showers will continue through Thursday and Friday, although perhaps more of sleet and hail near some coasts. Over exposed high ground, snow will drift in the strong winds.Travel delays on roads are likely, as are public transport cancellations. There is a chance of power cuts, while services such as mobile phone coverage may be affected. A few rural communities may become cut off. In addition some roads and pavements will turn icy, increasing the chances of accidents or injuries.

Chief Forecaster

Snow showers will be heaviest and most frequent across western Scotland, where high ground is likely to see a further 10-20 cm building up above 200-300 metres. There may also be more than 15 cm over the high ground of Northern Ireland and northern England. At low levels, parts of the warning area will see 3-10 cm of snow, with some places near the west coast seeing very little. Showers will be accompanied by hail and lightning at times, particularly across western Scotland. Here, in particular, there is potential for disruption to power supplies from lightning strikes.Strong winds bring the potential for temporary blizzard conditions and drifting of lying snow, mainly over high ground.
