    Snow is expected over the high ground of northern England and Scotland on Thursday and may fall to low levels for a time in Scotland. Snow accumulations of 3 to 6 cm are likely above 200 metres with 10 cm or more above 300 metres. At low levels, including the Central Belt, 1 to 3 cm is possible in places.

    Warning

    Some very strong winds are expected during Thursday in association with Storm Doris.

    Gusts of 50-60 mph are expected widely across the warning area, with the risk of 70 mph on coasts and hills. A small swathe of even stronger winds is likely to develop - most likely across parts of northern England, Wales, the Midlands and later East Anglia.
