The Met Office says across the United Kingdom, 2-5 cm (1-2 inches) of snow is likely in the other affected areas, with 10-20 cm possible in some locations, mainly in northern Scotland, Northern Ireland, and possibly the north-west Midlands. Cloudier than recent days, with some snow possible in the south.

One Twitter user wrote: Storm Caroline approaching, danger to life, take care our snowman has already been blown over and injured? Broadly speaking we're looking at 2cm to 5cm, but in more exposed areas we could see 10cm to 20cm.

Caroline, the third named storm of the year, is also expected to cause power cuts and bring large waves to coastal routes, seafronts and coastal communities in northern Scotland.
