The Met Office is warning there is a chance of snow in Cumbria as Storm Arwen approaches.
A yellow weather warning for wind is also set to come into force in Cumbria at 9am tomorrow and will remain in force until 6pm on Saturday.
A forecaster for the Met Office said: “Cumbria is obviously covered by the yellow wind warnings through this weekend. On Friday, this wind warning is associated with northern and western areas of the UK, and gusts in exposed coastal areas could be excess of 65mph. This means there’s a risk of some travel being disrupted, as well as the chance of disruption near the coast as a result of large waves.
“That windy theme continues on Saturday, where gusts will continue to be around 60mph, and possibly stronger in exposed coastal areas. The winds will die down for Cumbria later in the day, as Storm Arwen shifts out into the continent later in the day. The warning for the area expires at 6pm, although it will still be breezy beyond that time.
“In addition, there’s a chance of some snow in the high ground on Friday and into Saturday, although the snow warning itself is confined to Scotland. In lower ground, this will likely fall as sleet, and more short-lived.
“In terms of temperatures, Cumbria can expect a continued drop in temperatures, in line with much of the rest of the UK. Overnight lows will head below freezing and could lead to some hazardous travel conditions and daytime highs will likely only be in the low single figures.”
