Severe weather warning issued for North of England

09 Décembre 2017

"Keep your distance and reduce your speed, because even in conditions that seem normal, and the snow is not settling, it can be slippery if ice patches have formed, or where fresh grit has not been worked into the carriageway".

After school closures and power cuts in Scotland on Friday, the heaviest and most frequent snow showers are predicted to be in the north-east of the country during Saturday.

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for tomorrow and Saturday due to snow and dangerously icy conditions.

Temperatures could drop as low as -6C (21F) in Scotland and Wales in rural areas and where there is lying snow.

"Snow showers will continue to affect parts of Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales, northern England and parts of the Midlands", reads the weather warning on the official Met Office website.

He has since been fired from his Netflix show " House of Cards " and the movie "All the Money in the World". He added: "My hair was dark at the time, I was 10 years younger and right up his alley".

About 18,000 homes across Scotland were affected by power cuts, according to Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks, but power was returned to the majority of affected homes by Friday evening.

Met Office chief meteorologist Dan Suri said; "It's going to be a cold weekend for everybody with some hard frost at night".

The weather warning states: "Road, rail and air travel delays are likely, as well as stranding of vehicles and public transport cancellations. There is increasing certainty in the track and location of the heaviest snow".

"There is a good chance that some rural communities could become cut off". Ten centimetres looks likely quite widely within the warning area (East Midlands, East of England, London & South East England, North West England, Wales, West Midlands, Yorkshire & Humber), with 15 to 20 cm in places.
