The Met Office has issued more weather warnings on Saturday as the whole of the UK will face disruption as Storm Arwen is to bring up to 12 inches of snow and dangerous ice.

A yellow warning is in place between 5pm on Saturday until 11pm on Sunday evening as large swathes of the UK is expected to have snowfall.

The Met Office has issued an amber warning as winds could reach 75mph across the UK and an Arctic blast could cause “hazadous travel” conditions.

The Met Office warned, “Rain and sleet showers will continue Saturday evening and overnight into Sunday around northern and eastern Scotland and eastern England.

“These will turn to snow at times to low levels but mainly over modest high ground with some small further accumulations.

“Surfaces will remain wet from these showers with icy stretches likely to form readily Saturday evening.

“There is also likely to be some icy stretches forming where snow is already lying over parts of the high ground of northern England and Scotland.

“There is a chance of some more general snow falling over the far north and northwest of Scotland during Sunday morning and this may bring some local further small accumulations.”

Met Office Principal Meteorologist Dan Suri warned Storm Arwen will especially affect the northeast on Friday.

He said, “Storm Arwen is associated with a deep low pressure system that will impact the northeast in particular from Friday, but will also bring wider impacts to the UK with high winds, rain and some snow probable over the high ground.

“Storm Arwen’s impacts are mainly associated with high winds as the storm sinks southwards and will widely bring gusts of up to 65mph in coastal areas, although slightly stronger in the northeast, with in excess of 75mph possible in exposed locations.”
