    Here comes the snow pt2

    THE Met Office says there is a 60 per cent chance of heavy snow bringing parts of Plymouth a halt on Thursday and Friday.

    They have issued a warning of severe or extreme weather.

    Heavy snowfall is forecast for Plymouth and other parts of the South West before the weekend.

    The Met Office says up to 20cm of snow will settle in parts of the region, with heavy falls in the city, and they say transport infrastructure will be hit.

    In general, accumulations of five to 10cms of snow are expected but this could double in some areas.

    This is the second big freeze of the winter and while Scotland, the North and the East bore the brunt of the first, this time the West is at the forefront of the weather system.

    Ice, snow and freezing rain will sweep across the west of the country from Ireland early on Thursday.

    Severe weather warnings are in place for 10 regions and temperatures are set to plunge to -10C.

    Snow is likely to continue through the weekend and some parts of the country will see a White Christmas.


    fingers crossed! although when ever its predicted we never actually get it!

    According to Metcheck, we are all going to die a horrible death in near vacuum on Saturday morning. In London at least.

    (The column with the red cell is air pressure. It should be 970-ish for low pressure).

    I'd love to see more of the white stuff, over Suffolk way!

    We had some, which was enough to keep me out of work for 2 days, but I'd like to wake up on Monday with about 2 foot!!!

    Saturday, I have to be at a wedding in Kent, so don't want any before then!

    Selfish, I know, but sorry all!!!
