Second snow warning issued for Cumbria as Atlantic storm moves in


But while the Met Office has issued amber weather warnings and a "threat to life" amid flying debris, many have poked fun at the storm damage - or lack thereof - in their area.

From Friday to Sunday we're being told to expect strong northwesterly winds and snow showers.

Super-sized waves with a 33ft swell - bigger than a double decker bus - have formed off the coast of Scotland as Storm Caroline gathers strength in the Atlantic.

Forecasting snow showers in the United Kingdom can be quite challenging as conditions are often borderline between rain and snow.

"1cm to 5cm of snow is widely expected, with up to 10cm in places".

Yellow "be aware" alerts have been put on place from 8am on Thursday until 6pm on Saturday with severe weather expected to cause widespread transport disruption.

Conditions will start to turn wet and blustery, especially across the north and north west of the United Kingdom, before gales hit on Thursday.


"Overnight, the main feature will be the increase in wind as Caroline starts to come in towards the end of the night".

'At the moment we have a yellow weather warning in place, but it could be upgraded to amber'.

There may also be short-term power outages.

If the satellite imagery is anything to go by, then the United Kingdom will get shafted pretty hard by the storm too, with the Met Office issuing warnings of their own.

The weatherman also said there was a risk of travel delays due to wintry conditions on Friday and Saturday.

CNR International said a total of 69 of the 159 staff on Ninian South, about 240 miles from Aberdeen, would be leaving the structure as a precaution.

"During winter weather which brings snow showers, it is not uncommon for snow amounts to vary considerably across short distances", said the Chief Forecaster.
