Meteorologists warn of snowdrifts, urge motorists to drive with care

25-11-2007

Meteorologists have warned of the risk of snowdrifts on higher ground on Sunday evening. A band of low pressure coming in from Scandinavia is threatening to bring snow and strong north-westerly winds to altitudes over 800m above sea level. It is expected to snow in most parts of the country until Tuesday night at the earliest, and even lower-lying ground can expect between 2 – 15cm of snow. Forecasters predict that higher ground could see as much as 30cm of snowfall. As a result of the winter-y weather, motorists have been warned to drive with extreme caution.
