As the weather turns cold and wintry, snow is set to fall on Salford over the weekend.

Heavy rain moving in from the east of the UK, is expected to mix with a cold and icy air over on Saturday bringing as much as 10cm of snow in some higher and more rural areas.


Between 09:35 Fri 8th and 18:00 Sat 9th

Snow showers will continue to affect parts of Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales, northern England and parts of the Midlands. 2-5 cm of snow is likely in places over the warning area. 10-20 cm is possible for some locations, mainly in northern Scotland, Northern Ireland, north Wales and perhaps the northwest Midlands. Icy surfaces are also likely to be an additional hazard, especially overnight. The heaviest and most frequent snow showers will progressively become confined to northeast Scotland during Saturday. Impacts include possible travel delays on roads stranding some vehicles and passengers with possible delays and cancellations to rail and air travel. Some rural communities could be cut off and power supplies interrupted. Probably some icy stretches on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths and also a chance of injuries from slips and falls on icy and snowy surfaces.


Between 04:00 Sun 10th and 18:00 Sun 10th

A spell of heavy snow is likely over parts of Wales, the Midlands and parts of Northern England on Sunday. Road, rail and air travel delays are likely, as well as stranding of vehicles and public transport cancellations. There is a good chance that some rural communities could become cut off.

People are being advised to stay indoors when and where possible, also if you have any elderly neighbours please check on them to ensure they are safe and well.
