London snow: Weather warning issued as Siberian wind blows over

London snow: Weather warning issued as Siberian wind blows over

Met Office forecaster Martin Bowles said that cold air from eastern Europe is once again to blame for the influx of snow.

High pressure over Scandinavia will dominate as we go into the weekend.

Londoners can expect Siberian wind and heavy snowfall this weekend as a weather warning is issued.

Mr Bowles told Metro.co.uk: 'It's not likely to be anything like as bad as two weeks ago, but we could see between 2cm and 5cm of snow'.

"The Met Office is monitoring the developing weather situation and yellow means keep an eye on the latest forecast and be aware that the weather may change or worsen".

TL;DR: Bairstow blitz powers England to series win
For now, the focus will switch to red-ball cricket as New Zealand prepare to face England in a two-match Test series at home . Bairstow dominated the bowlers, smashing nine fours and six sixes as he thrashed a century from just 58 balls.

The Met Office issued the yellow warning today (March 14) and told people to expect delays and hazardous conditions when travelling on Sunday (March 18).

"Yes, I hate to say it, we could see the return of snow too, this weekend".

Weather presenter Nazaneen Ghaffar said: Very cold conditions are expected to spread westwards across the United Kingdom and Ireland later on Friday and through this weekend as easterly winds develop.

Snow showers are likely throughout Sunday, and where these converge some snow may well accumulate and could then prove disruptive. There will also be a significant wind chill, making it feel colder than the temperatures suggest.
