Snow Warning For Yorkshire Coast

Wintry scenes in Shawlands on the southside of Glasgow

"Some rural communities could become cut off. Power cuts may occur and other services, such as mobile phone, may be affected".

Overnight the Maritime and Coastguard Agency assisted the Southern Health Trust in using 4x4s to transport nurses to vulnerable people who were snow-bound in the Warrenpoint and Newry area.

"The strongest winds are expected to transfer eastwards across the warning area before clearing by late morning".

The Met Office has confirmed that parts of Scotland, Northern Ireland and northern England can expect up to 20cm (8 in) of snow, also warning of 70mph winds in some places.

"That in practice means that all travel should be avoided on those parts of the trunk road affected by the amber warning, namely south and south-west Scotland for the duration of the amber warning", he said.

Northern England and Northern Ireland have also seen flurries of snow, with 1cm reported in Lough Fea, Northern Ireland, and further accumulations expected through the day.

President Donald Trump backs the proposal, said White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, at her daily news briefing. Menendez said he hoped it was clear to Kelly that "they're going to have to come more to the center if they truly want a fix".

The Met √Čireann says frost, ice and lying snow will largely clear at lower elevations by Wednesday afternoon, with sunny spells developing.

The snow and ice warning is valid up until 11:00am on Thursday.

While Storm Fionn may have passed, another belt of snow, rain and wind is set to cross the country Wednesday with Weather Warnings in place. There is also a possibility that some bridges may close.

Large parts of England and Wales aren't faring much better either as they remain under a slightly lower yellow weather warning.

Police Scotland closed parts of the motorway in Lanarkshire in both directions due to wintry conditions for a number of hours overnight - with tailbacks stretching 12 miles southbound and seven miles northbound at one stage. Over the hills, snow will drift in the strong to gale force winds.
