Warning

During Friday, increasingly frequent snow showers already affecting parts of Scotland, Northern Ireland and northern England will extend across many other northern and western parts of the UK. 2-5 cm of snow is likely in places over the warning area. 10-20 cm is possible for some locations, mainly in northern Scotland, Northern Ireland, north Wales and perhaps the northwest Midlands. Icy surfaces are also likely to be an additional hazard, especially overnight. The heaviest and most frequent snow showers will progressively become confined to northeast Scotland during Saturday.Possible travel delays on roads stranding some vehicles and passengers with possible delays and cancellations to rail and air travel.Some rural communities could be cut off and power supplies interrupted.Probably some icy stretches on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths.Some injuries from slips and falls on icy and snowy surfaces.This warning has been updated to extend east to include more of the Pennines.

Chief Forecaster

During winter weather which brings snow showers, it is not uncommon for snow amounts to vary considerably across short distances. On Friday and Saturday, the snow showers could lead to snow accumulations which vary markedly across the warning area. Strong northwest winds may cause drifting of the snow in places with blizzard conditions possible across northern Scotland.
