A band of snow will push into the west into Friday morning with parts of Wales, the west of England and later Northern Ireland particularly at risk of heavy falls of snow and blizzard conditions in strong winds.
Met Office severe weather warnings have been issued for the heavy snow. A red warning has been issued for upland parts of southern Wales where accumulations of 10 to 15 cm are expected. Up to 30 cm is possible over the hills and blizzard conditions are likely.
An amber warning is in place for other parts of Wales, western England, the Midlands and central and southern England, as well as Northern Ireland where accumulations of 10 to 15 cm are expected and 20 cm or more over the hills.

For the last few months, we have created weather summary videos using satellite imagery and pressure charts, along with our climate summary, to explain the weather we’ve seen in the UK over the past month. We’ve experimented with two different formats for this video – using a presenter on screen to explain the weather or a voice over.
For August, forecaster Charlie Powell explained the weather off screen.
While for July, weather presenter Rob McElwee talked through the weather on screen.
