Surprise snowfall provides real festive feel for Warrington


SNOW arrived in Warrington late on Saturday night, providing a real festive feel to the town.

While the snow had been forecast elsewhere in the country, especially along the East Coast it hadn’t been forecast for Warrington.

Earlier the Met Office had issued a Yellow weather warning for snow and ice in the North West of England, but mainly on hills.

The forecast for Sunday is:
Early wintry showers easing through the morning, then mainly dry, cloudy and gloomy. Turning a bit brighter in places with sunny spells but feeling cold despite the light winds. Maximum temperature 4 °C.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:
Outbreaks of rain on Monday with some snow, primarily over the hills, drier in Cumbria. Mainly dry on Tuesday and Wednesday, with overnight frost, ice and possible freezing fog. Cold.

The long-range forecast is an uncertain start to the period as milder and more generally unsettled, windy conditions across the south and west try and extend further north and east. It’s likely that these milder conditions will ultimately spread to the whole UK, but it may well take until the weekend to reach the extreme northeast of Scotland. Elsewhere, milder, or at least less cold weather than the preceding days, with areas of rain and stronger winds, more especially in the west, this erratically spreading further north and east with time, and turning to snow across parts of the northeast especially. Moving towards mid-December and more generally unsettled and milder conditions look most probable although a return of the colder conditions cannot be ruled out entirely.
