could turn to snow in the Burnham-On-Sea today, says Met Office
say there is a 'small chance' that Burnham-On-Sea will see snow
today (Thursday) or on Friday when a spell of arctic weather arrives.
rain will move through our area today and the Met office says there
is a possibility it will turn to sleet or snow in the afternoon
on the back edge of the weather front.
Met Office has widened its amber snow warning area to include Burnham-On-Sea
and the whole of Somerset, however forecasters say there remains
uncertainty about which areas will see a dusting of snow.
for the Met Office says: "Rain moving eastwards may turn to
snow in places. Whilst
this is unlikely, there is a small chance of snow settling with
disruption to road, rail and air services, as well as interruptions
to power supplies and other utilities. Associated heavy rain and
strong winds may prove additional hazards."
the area of heavy rain moves further north, this would pull cold
air into the system and bring snow to parts of southern England.
At the same time heavy rain will likely persist in some areas along
with the potential for some locally strong winds."
