Will Merseyside see snow ?

Merseyside is currently not on a severe weather warning, but there is a small chance that the region could see some snow over the weekend.

Most of the east of England will see the heaviest, but as winds push the snowfall further west, this could lead to Merseyside seeing a light dusting through Sunday morning.

Met Office Chief Meteorologist Laura Paterson said: “Snow showers will become increasingly likely across eastern England on Saturday and then there is the potential for some significant snowfall in places, particularly in the South East of England, by Sunday. Yellow National Severe Weather Warnings have been issued”.
