The Met Office has today [Wednesday] issued a severe weather warning that includes a 60% risk of disruption for Stoke-on-Trent & Staffordshire.
The warning is for heavy snow and was issued at 11.49am today and is valid through to 18.00hrs Friday.
Snow showers will become increasingly frequent and heavy across Scotland, Northern Ireland and north Wales by the end of Thursday and will then extend south to the rest of Wales and southwest and central areas of England into Friday. Eastern coastal counties will also see snow showers for a time until early on Friday. Accumulations of 5 to 10 cm are expected in general, but with possibly 20 cm in places by Friday evening. Snow will be accompanied by strong north or northwesterly winds leading to some drifting.
This is expected to cause disruption to travel networks.
Please be aware of this if you are planning journeys either by car or by public transport.
Let’s hope that this is something that the weathermen/women get wrong.
