Areas around the UK will face localised blizzard conditions and up to 80mph winds.

This replaces seasonal highs that have been lingering for several days.

The Met Office has said Tuesday, January 4 will be “noticeably colder across the whole country”, with temperatures peaking at 8C or 9C in the south and about 4C or 5C in Scotland.

When will it snow in Blackburn and Lancashire?

There is currently a Met Office yellow warning for snow and ice across the North West on Friday, January 7.

There will be lows of two degrees, but it could feel as cold as minus two in some parts, including Blackburn. 

There will be winds of up to 20mph and some snow flurries, especially across high places. 

What is the Met Office yellow warning? 

The Met Office has said frequent sleet and snow showers may lead to some difficult driving conditions and disruption to travel on Friday morning.

It has also said to expect: 

  • Some roads and railways likely to be affected with longer journey times by road, bus and train services
  • Probably some icy patches on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths
  • Some brief power outages are possible with a risk of isolated lightning strikes.
