The Met Office has warned parts of the country may find themselves under two feet of snow by Saturday as the forecaster predicts even more snow showers throughout the weekend.

However, a Global Forecast System weather map, hosted by WXCHARTS, shows that Wales, Scotland and Midlands are going to be covered in another thick blanket of snow.

THE GFS map shows as much as 20cm are due to fall on the Midlands and south of Wales on March 11.

But before March’s second barrage of snow, Britain still has to contend with its current deep-freeze and snow storm.

A spell of heavy snow and blizzard conditions is expected

The Met Office has warned temperatures are expected to stay well below zero over Friday and Saturday night, with the mercury expected to hover around -10C in the north with lows of -7C elsewhere.

The Met Office warned of blizzards, loss of electricity and mobile phone signals, damage to trees and “severe snow drifting” ahead of Storm Emma’s arrival.

BBC Weather has warned of more “dangerous weather conditions are on the cards” as the Met Office predicts at least two feet of snow could blanket regions in Britain.

The Met Office has warned people to avoid public transport as delays and cancellations plague networks across the country.

People have also been advised to avoid travelling unless absolutely necessary as people became stranded in their cars overnight after being caught in deep snow drifts.

Met Office forecaster Paul Gundersen said: “A spell of heavy snow and blizzard conditions is expected. The snow will be accompanied by very strong easterly winds leading to severe drifting.

“Long delays and cancellations of public transport seem highly likely. “Some roads are likely to become blocked by deep snow, stranding vehicles and passengers. Long interruptions to power supplies and other utilities are very likely to occur, along with damage to trees and other structures due to heavy snow or ice.

“Icy patches are likely on untreated surfaces during Saturday morning.

“As a result, driving conditions may become difficult and there is an increased chance of injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces.”
