Significant snow fall expected as status Orange warning issued

The Met Office has also issued a yellow alert for snow and ice in Northern Ireland, with 2-5cm of snow forecast in many areas.

Wintery storms are due to make their way over British Isles on Saturday, with heavier snow expected on Sunday.

Accumulations of 4 to 8 centimetres could occur quite widely with greater totals possible.

Temperatures in some areas could drop as low as -2C.

A weather warning issued for Sunday has been upgraded to amber which means an increased likelihood of bad weather.

The warning is a change in the Met Office's original predictions of heavy snow across Lancashire, meaning the worst of the snowy weather hitting the United Kingdom could stay away.
