Heavy snow and blizzards are expected Friday into Saturday with up to 10 cm expected. Areas affected are Northern and Western Scotland and Northern Ireland along with parts of Wester England and Wales later Friday. Snow combined with gales will sweep across Scotland and will lead to blizzard conditions and snow drifts. Disruption to Transport and networks is likely and the public are advised to take care. Batten down the hatches. Just read this on another forum.
