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.
