Nothing sweet in weather forecast as Met Éireann issues Storm Caroline warning

Snow showers are expected to become increasingly frequent over northern Scotland late on Thursday and are expected across many other parts of Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and western England on Friday.

Met Éireann has also issued weather warnings for wind, snow, and ice on Friday across Ireland.

"At the moment we have a yellow weather warning in place, but it could be upgraded to amber".

Today will be the last day of mild conditions before a cold snap forecast to last until Christmas grips the UK.

Storm Caroline hasn't even arrived yet, but weather forecasters are already predicting that there's going to be a massive dump of snow hot on her heels.

A yellow "be aware" warning is in force for the southern half of Scotland and parts of the north of Northern Ireland between 6am and 6pm as well.

Transport networks face widespread disruption and power cuts are possible as a result of the extreme weather, the forecaster said.

Apple has started selling an unlocked iPhone X from its online store
The high price tag of the iPhone X remains for the unlocked models: a 64GB device costs $999 while the 256GB model costs $1,149. As 9to5Mac reported yesterday, Apple is now offering the option to buy the tenth-anniversary handset without a carrier.

In a yellow warning, the forecaster said: "Gusts of 60-70 miles per hour are expected quite widely, with gusts to 80 miles per hour possible near north facing mainland coasts and across the Isles".

Ferry services and trains are cancelled in the north and west of Scotland, while Traffic Scotland warned of disruption on the roads.

Loss of power will be another concern, along with large waves at the coast.

Across the United Kingdom, conditions will start to turn wet and blustery overnight, especially across the North and North West, with strong winds expected early on Thursday.

Over higher ground, 20 cm is possible in a few places.

A North Sea platform shut down production due to safety fears over weather conditions caused by Storm Caroline.

Later this week, snow and falling temperatures are forecast for parts of Britain.
