Weather: Further snow showers

A further 10-15 cm is likely to build up above 150 m with 20-30 cm possible over the highest routes - although (as is the nature with showers) some areas will see less.

At low levels, 2-6 cm, perhaps locally 10 cm, would be more likely.

Showers may well be accompanied by hail and lightning at times, increasing the potential for disruption to power supplies.

Winds will strengthen at times, bringing the potential for temporary blizzard conditions and drifting over hills.

England all-rounder Ben Stokes is set to appear in court on an affray charge, on the same day he was expected to return to international cricket in a Twenty20 match in New Zealand.

Avon and Somerset Police confirmed that Stokes is due at Bristol Magistrates' Court on February 13, following an incident outside a nightclub in the city in September.

The 26-year-old from Cockermouth, who missed the Ashes after being suspended from playing for England, is accused of affray alongside two other men.
