The development comes amid reports of Storm Caroline battering northern Scotland today.

Motorists are being warned of potential disruption, as a band of snow looks set to sweep across Cumbria - with a second warning already issued for the weekend.

"The UK Met Office have named it Storm Caroline".

Forecasting snow showers in the United Kingdom can be quite challenging as conditions are often borderline between rain and snow.

The organisation's Chief Forecaster said winds will ease as Thursday progresses, but snow showers will become more frequent and heavier.

Met Office meteorologist Marco Petagna said: 'Wednesday will see the last of the mild days, with temperatures in double figures, between 10 and 12 degrees (50F-54F).

"1cm to 5cm of snow is widely expected, with up to 10cm in places".

From Friday to Sunday we're being told to expect strong northwesterly winds and snow showers.

A yellow "be aware" warning is in force for the southern half of Scotland and parts of the north of Northern Ireland between 6am and 6pm as well.

'Overnight, the main feature will be the increase in wind as Caroline starts to come in towards the end of the night.

Coastal routes, seafronts and coastal communities are likely to be affected by spray or large waves.

Met √Čireann has issued a national status yellow warning as Storm Caroline approaches Ireland.

Sunday's weather warning is in force from 04.00 on Sunday until 23:55.

Scotland's Transport Minister Humza Yousaf said: "With stormy weather expected across the north of Scotland we would urge people to check with their operators before they travel, especially if they are planning a ferry journey".

There may also be short-term power outages.

Later this week, snow and falling temperatures are forecast for parts of Britain.
