The Met Office are warning Merseyside of snow and ICE from 12:05am Friday to 9am on Saturday.

These weather warnings come just as Scotland has been placed on Met office RED warning, which warns of danger to life.

The Met Office say: “Further spells of snow could continue to move north through Friday, with the potential to produce widespread snowfall, accompanied by strong winds – although the winds will tend to ease through the day.

“Amounts of snow are likely to be highly variable. Currently Wales, parts of Southwest England and The Midlands are most likely to have the largest amounts of snow, with the potential for an additional 5-10 cm here.

“This warning has been updated to restrict the warning to just Friday. The warning has also been changed from a combined snow/wind to a snow/ice warning to reflect the increased likelihood of icy stretches forming through Friday evening”.
