It's Coming Back!

The Met Office have issued a weather warning for the East Midlands.

After temperatures were pretty bearable this week we could have been forgiven for thinking that Spring was finally upon us.

Perhaps not though as The Met Office have issued a weather warning for the East Midlands.

Originally it had just been overtnight on Friday but the warning has been extended. 

3 o'clock on Friday all the way through to 11:55 on Sunday night is now when we could expect The Beast from the East 2.

Here's exactly what the warning says for Friday, "A band of rain and hill snow will increasingly turn to snow to lower levels through Friday evening and overnight into Saturday. This band will gradually ease during Saturday morning as it moves south-westwards, allowing ice to form as it clears. Some roads and railways are likely to be affected with longer journey times by road, bus and train services. Icy patches are likely on untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths."

Then it continues on Sunday, "Snow showers are likely to continue throughout Sunday, and where these converge some snow may well accumulate and could then prove disruptive. There is a small chance that snow may fall for a longer period across southern, and particularly south eastern regions for a time on Sunday. There is a chance of travel delays on roads with some stranded vehicles, along with delayed or cancelled rail and air travel. There is a chance that power cuts will occur and services, such as mobile phone, may be affected. There is a small chance that some rural communities could become cut off."

Get those sledges back out you bought a couple of weeks ago and were hoping you wouldn't have to use for another year.
