and live on Freeview channel 276
With a Yellow weather warning already in place for our towns and villages across the borough for heavy snow until 2pm tomorrow, which “has the potential to cause disruption,” the Met Office has also issued an Amber warning from 3pm this afternoon.
This band of heavy snow is “likely to cause significant disruption on Thursday afternoon and Friday morning.”
The Met Office has told the public to expect some delays and cancellations to rail and air travel, while there is a good chance that some rural communities could become cut off.
The forecast states that clouds will spread from the west, “followed by rain, sleet and snow across all parts from late morning and through the afternoon, turning heavy at times.” It will also be “breezy” with a maximum temperature of 4 °C.
