The UK is ready to expertise severe snowstorms and travel disruption on Thursday, forecasters have warned.
The Met Workplace has issued an amber “danger to life” warning for “robust winds bringing blizzard situations” and as much as 40cm of snow to the world stretching from Stoke-on-Trent to Durham.
It comes after Wednesday was the coldest night time of the yr. Temperatures in Kinbrace, within the Scottish Highlands, plunged to -15.4C, whereas Thursday night time might be even colder.
On Thursday there will probably be occasional rain throughout southern England, turning to snow because it spreads north to central components of the UK.
Heading into Friday, the Met Workplace predicts that the snow will clear within the East of England, though snow showers are anticipated to persist in northern Scotland.
