UK Weather: ‘Substantial’ snowfall expected to cause ‘hazardous’ travel from FRIDAY
An arctic blast is set to bring in chilling winds and rainy, or showery, outbreaks from the Northwest of Scotland, Northern Ireland, and the North of England by early Friday. Scotland, Northeast England and the southwest of the UK (Cornwall to Southwest Wales) will experience heavier rainfall of one to two inches (25-50 mm).
Winds are expected to tear through the nation as the strongest during this period can reach 50-60 mph (80-100 km/h).
AccuWeather meteorologist Jim Andrews warned these strong winds are likely to cause disruptions.
He told Express.co.uk: “Winds can be locally damaging to trees and power lines.
“Ferry and bridge crossings may be disrupted, and crosswinds will increase road hazards, especially for high-profile vehicles.”
