UK Met Office BBC weather snow forecast latest

And it is this area of mostly heavy snow when it meets the freezing temperatures to the north over the United Kingdom, ahead of a surface warm front, which will push north across SW England and south Wales this afternoon ahead of Storm Emma drifting north across the Bay of Biscay this afternoon, evening and overnight - before swinging northwest and deepening towards SW Ireland on Friday.

The Met Office said: "Further snow showers or perhaps longer spells of snow are likely at times through Friday". London's Paddington Station was closed temporarily Thursday morning because of a build-up of ice and snow on the platforms and multiple routes across the country are affected. We are not over the worst of the weather for some time yet. The low is, at 11am, centred over NW Spain, but has sent an upper warm front north well ahead of the low pressure system, with moisture advection behind this warm front upgliding over still bitterly cold sub-zero air at the surface over southern United Kingdom bringing mainly light snow moving north this morning. On Thursday evening Western Power Distribution, which serves the Midlands, Wales and the south west, said 1,300 homes had power cuts, although not all were weather-related.

Most shops and business up and down the country are shutting their doors right now in line with government recommendations but one Dublin city centre store is defying the weather warnings.

Garda Enda Waters told the court that when charged, Mr Freeman replied: "I wasn't there to be stealilng or robbing anything". Shortly after this incident occurred, guards arrived on the scene and nine people were arrested.

Meanwhile, a Level 3 cold weather alert is in force for all of England for the coming days.

If suppliers can not provide more gas, industry, large businesses and gas-fired power stations will be asked to use less, but domestic consumers would only be affected as a last resort.

The Met Office says the cold weather could last into next week and possibly the following week.

A YELLOW warning for STRONG WINDS across Cumbria is in place until 12pm today.

"Our advice is heat homes to at least 18C, to keep a close eye on weather forecasts and plan your day around them and think if there are people that you're able to check up on, please do".

Cloudy with further snow for most of the British isles. "Further impacts to power supplies/mobile phone coverage are also possible". It had a maximum daytime temperature of -5.2C.

North Korea takes gold for Olympic diplomacy
She met Moon on Friday as part of a weekend trip to lead the US delegation to the closing ceremony of the Winter Olympics. General Kim sat in the row behind the most senior U.S. delegate, Ivanka Trump, the daughter of the president.
