Arctic air causes turbulent weather conditions in UK

According to the Met Office, turbulent weather conditions in the UK are being caused by an Arctic air mass from the north meeting mild air from the south.

On Thursday, snowstorms are expected to hit large parts of England, while sleet and rain will batter other areas of the UK.

The Met Office has issued an amber warning for strong winds and blizzard conditions, with up to 16in (40cm) of snow expected for an area stretching from Stoke-on-Trent to Durham.

This warning is expected to last for 21 hours from 3pm on Thursday and will affect major cities such as Liverpool, Sheffield, Bradford, and Leeds.

The warning predicts significant disruption to transport, power lines, and phone network coverage.

Daytime temperatures are predicted to be in the low single figures, with sub-zero temperatures overnight in much of the UK.

However, slightly warmer conditions are expected in the south.

In addition to the amber warning, a yellow warning for heavy snow also covers a large area between Glasgow and Birmingham until 2pm on Friday.

Furthermore, a second yellow warning for snow and ice is in place over the Scottish Isles until 10am on Thursday.
