Snow Warning For Yorkshire Coast

Snow and ice has been forecast for certain areas of Northern Ireland

Severe weather warnings have been extended from Scotland and Northern Ireland to cover parts of northern England, Wales and the Midlands today.

The Met Office's chief forecaster predicts: "Snow showers will be heaviest and most frequent across western Scotland".

But other parts of Scotland have been blanketed in snow as forecasters warn of plunging temperatures and possible disruption.

"This is an update to the warning, shrinking the yellow area and also the validity period".

Met Office spokeswoman Nicola Maxey told the Press Association it was a "showery" outlook.

Met Éireann has also issued a fourth weather warning for counties Donegal, Galway, Leitrim, Mayo, Sligo, Clare, Cork, Kerry and Limerick of high seas affecting the Atlantic seaboard increasing the risk of coastal flooding. At low levels throughout the warning area, 2-8 cm will be more typical, with some places seeing very little.

The warnings remain active until 11am on Wednesday.

Gritters were out in force across Scotland, with pictures on social media showing particularly hard driving conditions on the M8 near Easterhouse.

The Met Office has issued the warning for between 6pm today (Wednesday 17 January) and 6am tomorrow (Thursday 18 January) and is expected to hit Scarborough and Whitby in particular. Meanwhile, 21 cm of snow fell over Tulloch bridge overnight with minimums falling around -4 degrees Celsius.

"Gusts of 50-60 miles per hour are likely quite widely".

Showers are expected to continue into the night with wintry falls on Wednesday, especially across the north.

Elsewhere, drivers were forced to ditch their cars on the M62 in northern England as savage winter weather battered the region. We're looking at three to eight cms accumulating in places with potential for 20cms over higher ground.

Some parts of Northern Ireland could see as much as 15cm of snow on Thursday and Friday.

She went on: "It's a very showery set-up over the next few days". The wintry showers are expected to last until 3am on Wednesday.

Some roads and pavements are expected to turn icy with an increased likelihood of some accidents and injuries.
