Snow Warning Issued For The Isle Of Wight

Snow Warning Issued For The Isle Of Wight

The Met Office has today issued an alert for snow in the North-east.

A spokesman for the weather experts said: "A band of rain and hill snow will increasingly turn to snow to lower levels through Friday evening and overnight into Saturday".

A yellow weather warning for snow and ice is also in place between 5pm on Friday until 9am on Saturday for the east of England.

The cold snap may well last into next week and there is likely to be at least some snow in parts of the UK.

He said: 'We have got another spell of cold air from eastern Europe, with high pressure over Scandinavia, so the whole country will get very cold air over the weekend.

But forecasters say it will feel more like minus 8 degrees.

'As far as the snow is concerned, we think it is going to be mainly in the south east part of the country'. However, it would not compare to the conditions caused by the so-called "beast from the east" earlier this month.

"As a result some places may see temperatures fall to only a few degrees above freezing - this most likely across the east of the UK".

Parts of western and northern Aberdeenshire, including a stretch of the busy A96, are included in the at risk area.
