    Weather Alert

    Category: Level 2

    Weather Type: Snow/Ice

    Affecting: All parts of the UK, but snowfall especially for higher ground in northern Britain.

    Time and Date Valid For: 00:01 Thursday 07th April - 18:00 Saturday 09th April 2005

    Time Of Issue: 12:30pm Wednesday 06th April 2005

    A much colder spell of weather is likely over the next two or three days as a cold north/northwesterly airstream develops behind the current low that moves away to the east brining a return to wintry conditions.

    During the next couple of days, showery conditions will develop across all parts with hail, thunder, sleet or snow becoming increasingly likely almost anywhere.

    During Thursday night and Friday, the coldest air is likely to move in, with the hills of Scotland, Northern England, Northern Ireland and perhaps North Wales having the potential to see a lot of snowfall, with as much as 10cm settling. With the strong to gale force northerly winds, this snow could drift and blow around at times as well as provide blizzard like conditions in the heaviest showers.

    There is a small risk that a period of precipitation could move south during Thursday night, bringing a slight covering of snow even to southern parts.

    Frost will become widespread during Thursday and Friday nights, with icy surfaces likely. Please also see our seperate advisory for gardener's which can be found at: http://www.net-weather.co.uk/forum/index.php?showtopic=15588
