Winter isn’t quite done with us yet!

NEW-SNOW-RISK-MAPThrough Thursday night and Friday frontal systems pushing Northwards across the country will run into a pool of colder air across the Midlands Northwards and we’ll begin to see things turning increasingly to snow. A widespread 1-5cm is expected but the North Midlands, Northern England and into Scotland could see a significantly larger amount.

10-15cm looks likely to be the typical amount in these areas with localised areas seeing 20-25cm, the risk of blizzard conditions is a particular worry across the North Midlands during Friday.

On top of that, areas further South are likely to see some disruption from this system too, not from snowfall but from rain.Warnings-Panel

Locally we could see 20-25mm in a short space of time across more South-Western England and Southern parts of Wales, this is likely to lead to some flooding problems where ground is already saturated from recent heavy rainfall.
