Will we get snow like this again?


Snow is falling in Weston-super-Mare – but only in small flurries, while warnings of more severe weather are in place for later in the week.

The Met Office is predicting Weston may see more snow later this week, and it has put amber warnings in place from 2pm on Thursday to noon on Saturday. The warnings were previously yellow, but amber means the effect on transport and health risks could be more severe than originally thought.

But the snow has arrived early today (Tuesday), with small flurries coming down in Weston and Uphill this lunchtime.

The Met Office warned snow on Thursday could coincide with gale force winds.

A Met Office spokesman said: “There is still uncertainty in how this system will develop, but there is a small chance of the combined effects of snow, strong winds and ice leading to severe impacts.”

There is also a risk of ice on Friday and Saturday.

The spokesman added: “There is a slight chance roads may become blocked by deep snow, with stranded vehicles and passengers.”
