Icy conditions set to continue with further snow for many

29 November 2010

Snow covered country parkSnow and icy conditions are forecast to continue to affect many parts of the UK through the coming week as Met Office forecasters warn of further snowfall mainly across parts of northern and eastern Scotland and eastern parts of England.

Through tonight and into tomorrow parts of southern Britain that have so far avoided the worst of the wintry weather are likely to see some snowfall. The Midlands, the South East and parts of southern England may see 2 to 5 cm of snow.

Further snow across the country will be accompanied by strengthening winds, with the wind chill making it feel significantly colder.

Met Office Chief Forecaster, Tony Waters said: "Snow and icy conditions continue to be a risk through the coming week with some falls of snow across southern and central parts of England tonight and tomorrow as well as northern and eastern parts of the UK.

"With no sign in our extended outlook of the icy weather easing its grip, the public are advised to stay up to date with the forecast to make sure they have the latest information."

Latest forecasts are available from the Met Office website, including 'feels like' wind chill temperatures via the map-based section of our site. 'Feels like' temperatures are also provided on the downloadable weather widget that can be embedded on other websites to provide the latest weather forecast to web visitors.
