I hope it misses the crown ground tonight so Stanley can carry on up that league. come on and support us.
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.
Rain falling steadily now in Blackburn. Looking bleak out there...
Whatever people say about #Blackburn, we never get extreme weather. No floods or power cuts here. Being surrounded by hills shelters us.— @RovingMick 14 February 2014
Take a look at the MET office for more information...
Winds picking up a bit in Blackburn town centre. Be careful out there...

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.
