Friday Snow: Blizzard conditions and heavy snowfall predicted

A cold weather warning for Berkshire has been issued by the Met Office ahead of possible blizzards and heavy snowfall tomorrow.

Forecasters say there is a 90 per cent probability of severe cold weather as well as ice throughout the weekend with strong winds set to make it feel bitterly cold.

Predicted blizzard conditions and heavy snowfall, of up to 10cm in some areas, are also set to cause disruption on roads across the area tomorrow.

The Met Office has issued an amber warning for people to be prepared for disruption and longer journey times.

All councils are warning people to prepare for disruption and said they may be forced to alter their travel plans.

Gritters were out on main borough roads today in preparation for the snowfall.

No schools in Windsor, Maidenhead, Bucks or Wokingham have announced closures. The Littledown Special School in Queens Road, Slough, is the only one in the town which has confirmed closure.

* The Lands End ford in Park Lane, near Charvil remains closed because of raised water levels in the River Loddon.
