A yellow weather warning has been issued by the Met Office for Bolton, as heavy snowfall is expected to hit the area. The warning, in effect until 6am tomorrow, has prompted residents to prepare for challenging weather conditions.
Earlier this week, the Met Office predicted a prolonged period of heavy snow for today, but the forecast has been updated. Currently, light snow is falling in Bolton, with the intensity expected to increase by noon.
In addition to snow, strong and gusty easterly winds may cause drifting in some areas. Accumulations of 10-15cm of snow are anticipated across the warning area.
Met Office meteorologist, Amy Bokota, assured that milder conditions will return to most parts of the UK later today. However, northern England and Scotland will continue to experience the cold snap into the early hours of Friday and during the start of the weekend.
The hourly weather forecast for Bolton predicts sleet and heavy snow during midday. Strong winds of up to 43 miles per hour are also expected. The temperature will range between 1°C and 2°C throughout the day, with light rain forecasted from the late afternoon onwards.
Looking ahead, Friday will bring a slight increase in temperatures, reaching a high of 8°C. The sun will rise at 7.42am and set at 5.07pm.
