Topic: HEAVY SNOW on Friday for UK!

Quote  Winter is tightening its grip over much of the UK, with widespread freezing fog tomorrow following by extensive snow falling during much of Friday.

The lowest temperatures into today were -12.7C at Braemar in Scotland and -12.1C at Houghton Hall in Norfolk, MeteoGroup said that average temperatures were between -3C and -7C, and -3C in London - with worse to come. In Norfolk 262 schools have closed due to the weather

But many of us could feel even colder tomorrow. Laura Caldwell, a forecaster with the MeteoGroup weather division of the Press Association, said tonight's minimum could be -8C or even lower where snow is lying already.

Tomorrow will see widespread fog, especially in eastern England - with temperatures struggling to crawl above freezing apart from in the south and west.

Winds pick up into Friday, with the potential for gale force gusts in coastal areas - making 0C feel like up to -8C.

Most of England and Scotland would see significant snowfalls from daybreak, with possible blizzard conditions in exposed areas. Apart from the south and west, snowfall would be widespread and significant - not clearing until towards the end of the day.

The Met Office has issued an "amber" severe weather warning for parts of Wales and western England.

And then freezing fog returns on Saturday.

Today, RAC spokesman Simon Williams said that operators had dealt with a normal day's worth of calls before midday in East Anglia, one of the worst-hit areas

"We are experiencing a high volume of call-outs in coastal areas from the north east to Brighton in the south," he added.

"The main issues are frozen doors, petrol caps, windows and handbrakes.

"Nationally, we are expecting 8,500 breakdowns today, which is 1,000 more than a normal winter's day."Quote 


I am really happy at the moment and Yesterday Yellow Warning is Now AMBER WARNING for Wales , West Midlands and North West England could get up too 10CM - 15CM

If it snows (here in Ireland), it means I am off college. So the more the merrier for me.

I wish we'd get more snow here in Michigan. We had like 6 or 7 inches about two weeks ago and then it all disappeared.  it's certainly cold enough.  Last  night it was 18 degrees (-7 celsius)

Nah, HQ & I both like snow.  I don't like it when I get 20 inches (51 cm) of snow, but then I haven't had a chance to try out my snowblower I bought in 2011!  Get 3 huge storms, then I get a blower, and nothing worth using it on since.  Phhttt!

Re: HEAVY SNOW on Friday for UK!

Add me to the pro-snow list.  It's not winter without it.  Wish we'd get some.  Not so much that we lose power over it, but a little powder on the surrounding hills is a beautiful sight to behold.

Especially if you get a full moon right after.  My screenshot in the Screenshot Thread doesn't do the scene justice.
