Snow and Ice set to hit North Wales

SCOTS have been warned to brace themselves for Storm Caroline on Thursday, which will bring 80mph winds alongside -6C temperatures and an estimated two inches of snow.

Caroline is the fourth major storm to hit the United Kingdom this season following Aileen in September, ex-hurricane Ophelia in October and Brian, also in October.

A yellow "be aware" warning is in place for Scotland between 08:00 and 23:55 on Thursday.

The area covered by the warning stretches from Plymouth on the southwest coast right up to the Scottish Highlands, the Met Office said. An Atlantic storm will pass close to the north coast of Scotland on Thursday morning. High winds are expected to affect northern Scotland on Thursday.

It applies specifically from just after midnight, going into Friday, and runs from 12.05am to 6pm Saturday.

The Met Office is predicting that up to 5cm of snowfall is expected for some parts of the county, with up to 20cm also possible for many on high ground.
