The chief forecaster states: “Further spells of snow could continue to move north through Friday and into Saturday, with the potential to produce widespread snow, accompanied by strong winds – although the winds will tend to ease a little through Friday.

“This warning has been updated to bring the southern boundary south to reflect uncertainty in the timing of less cold air arriving in the south, which could be delayed, and the possibility for further spells of snow to arrive from the south later. The end time has been extended to the end of Saturday to cater for these too. The northern boundary has also been adjusted north slightly.”
