MET OFFICE: An area of rain will move across the UK from the south on Friday afternoon and into the evening.

As this rain arrives it will fall as snow above approximately 250 m over England and Scotland, but may fall to low levels for a time in the northern half of Northern Ireland and western Scotland.

Temporary accumulations of 2 to 5 cm are possible in places, mainly above 250 m, with up to 10 cm possible over the highest routes in Scotland.

Darron Burness, head of the AA’s flood rescue team, said: “Today has brought some temporary respite from the repeated body blows inflicted by the weather but, with the Met Office warning of a ‘multi-pronged attack’, drivers will need to be on their toes to avoid a sucker punch.”
A spokesman for Lancashire County Council said gritters were on standby.

The AA is encouraging drivers to use their car radio’s traffic announcement function to help minimise disruption to journeys as a ‘multi-pronged attack’ of rain, snow and wind is set to affect drivers.

STOP PRESS!

There will be weather all day today and tomorrow as well. Because it’s winter time it will probably be cold and knowing of the out of the ordinary weather conditions lately it may turn out to rain heavily and could very well snow as well. It‘s winter time!

The headline was 'weather warning'. When you read that what did you expect to read? Get a life you three . Some people need to know weather conditions. If you don't like what the site does , don't come on it.
