the Met Office is warning that blizzards are coming on Sunday. Scotland for sure to be snowy.

hi M,its absolutely freezing up here, should look after the spring flowers really, but theres no snow on pendle hill yet. looking out of the window you would think it was a beautiful day, but looking into the house you'd see me wrapped up to the nines with my blankets!!!

snowing now on M25 by South Mims junction causing slit.

Does this mean slippery roads?

sleet - snow mixed with rain, melting snow. More dangerous for driving then just snow

Silt= A sedimentary material consisting of very fine particles intermediate in size between sand and clay.

Sleet=Precipitation consisting of generally transparent frozen or partially frozen raindrops.

Ice storm are the worst for driving, but anything over 8 inches of snow at a time is pretty difficult to drive in too. (Yes, we had 390 inches/975 cm. of snow last winter, ice is much more difficult!)
But I have never had to drive through silt.
