    Alert

    A cold and increasingly showery northwesterly flow is expected to develop during Wednesday and last through Thursday. Accumulating snow is likely away from windward coastal districts, especially overnight. Across Northern England 3-6 cm could accumulate especially over high ground. Over Scotland and Northern Ireland 5-10 cm is likely even at low levels, with more than 10 cm over high ground. Strong and gusty winds will likely accompany snow showers, and lead to significantly reduced visibility at times, difficult driving conditions and temporary blizzards over high ground.

    The public should be aware of the potential for disruption to travel.
