Snow and storm forecast

WEATHER warnings for snow and high winds have been issued for parts of Dumfries and Galloway.

The Met Office are forecasting snow on high Eastern parts of the region from 5 pm tonight and into Saturday morning.

They said: “An area of rain and hill snow will move southwards over southern Scotland and northern England during Friday night. Much of this will clear to the south early on Saturday but some sleet and snow showers will follow.

“Snow is expected mainly above 300 to 400 m. At lower levels mostly rain is expected but there is a chance of some falling snow – mainly as the system clears south.

“With very strong winds expected as well some very difficult travel conditions are likely with blizzards leading to reduced visibility and the potential for some drifting of snow.”

And they predict a ‘small chance’ of travel delays and power cuts.

Meanwhile, Storm Arwen is also on the way and due to hit the UK over the next few days with heavy rain and up to 75mph winds,

It will be the country’s first official storm of the winter season and there is an amber weather warning for strong winds from Friday into Saturday,.
