Met Office extend snow warning for Wirral for tonight & tomorrow

The Met Office have issued snow warnings for Wirral tonight and tomorrow, as a weather front moves in and collides with a colder air mass above Britain.

Although Wirral has been issued a snow warning snow showers are expected to affect mainly the north and northwest of the UK.

At the moment there’s more of a chance of the area seeing sleet & rain rather than snow but 1-3cm could be expected in the warning area the Met Office say.

Strong winds of up to 40mph are expected to continue to last through the night.

Here’s how Thursday is currently looking:

Chance of sleety snow in the early hours of morning and possibly at times throughout Thursday.

Rain showers on and off throughout the day which could feature hail.

Max temp: 5c – Feels like: 0C

Low: 2C – Feels like: -4C

Chance of snow: 65% – Highest chance of snow points to early hours of Thursday morning and again around midday Thursday.

Forecasters are also suggesting that further snow showers could impact the UK in early February, as colder air stays above the UK.
