    This is a further update to extend the area of concern into both southeastern Aberdeenshire and parts of Northumberland.

    A spell of persistent and at times heavy snow currently affecting the area contained by the warning will last into Friday. By Friday morning, accumulations of 5-10 cm are likely above about 100 m with 15 cm or more possible above 200 m. Northern and southern fringes of the warning area are not likely to see accumulations as high as this.At lower levels and near coasts an uncertain mix of rain and snow is expected, with rain likely to predominate, bringing the risk of standing water on roads.
