Glasgow facing SECOND weather warning as amber 'danger to life' threat added

Winter weather Dec 15th 2018

The North East is set to be battered by sleet and freezing rain.


Shoppers determined enough to fearless the perilous cocktail of weather have been warned to take care in what has been dubbed "snow Saturday" by forecasters.

On Saturday and Sunday parts of Yorkshire could see blizzard conditions as heavy snow is blown in on strong winds.

The Met Office said: "Freezing rain is expected to result in the rapid development of widespread ice, with very unsafe travelling conditions likely".

But it adds: "The conditions needed for freezing rain to occur are quite specific and we don't see them very often, making this phenomenon quite rare in the UK". Similar to black ice, it can become very slippery and is often hard to see.

Temperatures are predicted to drop to as low as -8C in parts of Scotland this weekend, with up to 8in of snow possible on high ground and about 2in possible even to lower levels.

Kilkenny can expect serious wind and rain in the hours ahead, following confirmation that Met Éireann has upgraded its weather alert to Status Orange. Drivers are reminded to drive to the road conditions in front of them bearing in mind that black ice is not always visible.

Freezing rain was recorded near Leeds Bradford airport today and more could fall overnight.

"Across northern England and southern Scotland, snow may turn to freezing rain above 200 to 300 metres leading to widespread ice developing on Saturday night".

A status yellow rainfall warning also remains in place for the country with up to 50 millimetres of rain expected.

Shropshire was under a blanket of snow this time previous year but forecasters say the county is unlikely to enjoy a white Christmas in 2018.
