It’s all going to go batshit crazy on Thursday as moisture coming up from the south (oo-er) meets cold weather from the east.
The Met Office has issued an Amber Warning, meaning ‘Look Out For This Shit!’ It reads as follows:
A weather system is expected to move slowly north through Thursday, intensifying and pushing north across the warning area from Thursday afternoon. As it comes into contact with the very cold air resident over the UK, it has potential to produce widespread snow, accompanied by strong to gale force winds. As less cold air follows from the south, there is a chance of snow turning to freezing rain bringing an additional significant ice risk. There is still uncertainty in how this system will develop, but there is a chance that the combined effects of snow, strong winds and ice will lead to severe impacts.
