    Warning

    Snow is expected over high ground of northern England and Scotland on Thursday and may fall to low levels for a time in Scotland.
    Snow accumulations of 5 to 10 cm are expected on some hills with 2 to 5 cm possible to lower levels to the north of the Central Lowlands. The largest accumulations of 10 to 20 cm are likely on highest parts of the north Pennines and Southern Uplands.In addition, strong winds are expected to develop with gusts of 50 to 60 mph. This will result in drifting of the snow and blizzard conditions over high ground. Associated heavy rain at lower levels will be an additional hazard.

    The combination of snow, strong winds and heavy rain is likely to lead to disruption to transport networks and perhaps power supplies.
