Second snow warning issued for Cumbria as Atlantic storm moves in

Second snow warning issued for Cumbria as Atlantic storm moves in

TEMPERATURES plunging as low as -8C by Sunday will mark another dramatic change in Scotland's weather after Storm Caroline battered the north with gusts reaching 93mph.

"With cold air in place, a spell of snow looks likely to develop on its northern edge".

The Met Office has extended the warning area again - it now takes in nearly all of the county, with the exception of the very north east corner.

Forecasting snow showers in the United Kingdom can be quite challenging as conditions are often borderline between rain and snow.

Snow showers are expected to become increasingly frequent over northern Scotland late on Thursday and are expected across many other parts of Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and western England on Friday.

Met Office meteorologist John West said: "Storm Caroline is well on its way across northern parts of the UK".

Northern England is also expecting snow on Sunday evening.

However, their weather charts show snow is expected in Wales, the West Midlands, and Northern Ireland from around 6am.

"At the moment we have a yellow weather warning in place, but it could be upgraded to amber".

"Overnight, the main feature will be the increase in wind as Caroline starts to come in towards the end of the night".

Loss of power will be another concern, along with large waves at the coast.

Ireland is set for strong winds, snow and freezing temperatures in the next 72 hours, according to Met √Čireann, which has issued a yellow weather warning.

There may also be short-term power outages.

Meanwhile, Met Eireann also said that snow can be expected on Thursday and Friday in the west and northwest, especially on hills and mountains.

Snow and falling temperatures are also forecast for parts of Britain later in the week.
