Warning as cold snap returns to North-East
WARNINGS have been issued after a return to wintry conditions across the region.
A spokesman for the Met Office said snow showers affected many areas today (Sunday, March 10), as a result of strong northeasterly winds.
"Accumulations of snow will be very variable, as the showers are expected to become aligned into bands, with some places seeing two to five centimetres of snow and possibly as much as 10cm in a few places in eastern Scotland and North-East England by Monday morning," he said. "Lying snow will drift in the fresh to strong north-easterly winds.
"Ice will be an additional hazard, particularly in Scotland and North-East England where there has been melting between showers during Sunday.
"The public should be aware of the risk of disruption to travel."
Today (SUN) large flurries of snow fell in Newcastle.
Over the weekend, Killhope, County Durham was left looking more like a picturesque Christmas card scene as snow coated the pine trees which surround the village.
On Saturday, walkers braved the cold weather in Harwood, County Durham and snow ploughs were at work in Alston, Cumbria, as drivers navigated snow covered roads.
Temperatures hovered at around 1C creating the perfect conditions for snowfall, but with the wind chill factor, it felt as low as -5C.
