More snow to come
1 Feb 2021 03:47 PM
This week will see wintry conditions continue across Scotland, and for a time across northern England. Cold air is expected to push south and west across the whole of the UK through the coming weekend.
A number of National Severe Weather warnings have been issued for snow and ice throughout the coming week.
Met Office Chief Meteorologist, Frank Saunders, said: “Rain will push into the South West of the UK on Monday evening, bringing some heavy rain for southern areas. As the weather front ‘bumps’ into colder air further north, the rain will turn to snow, and with up to 4 cm falling quite widely a snow and ice warning has been issued.
“5-10 cm could fall above 150m in Southern Scotland and northern England with the potential for 20 cm or more across the highest roads. As well as snow, a period of freezing rain is possible for parts of northern England.”
Further spells of snow, heavy at times, are expected to continue to affect parts of the far north of England and Scotland on Wednesday. Significant accumulations of 10 to 20 cm or more are possible over higher ground which could bring further disruption to travel.
