Forecasters predict Merseyside will see more snow on Monday morning

Merseyside could be set for more snow according to expert forecasters at the Met Office.
Flurries of the white stuff may hit the region as a departing present from Storm Christoph, which initially brought so much rain to Liverpool and the surrounding areas.
After leaving Merseyside picture-perfect today, the weather front may give us another smattering of snow on Monday morning.
Steve Willington, chief forecaster for the Met Office said: The exit of Storm Christoph which brought the heavy rain to a central band of the UK has established a flow of colder air from Iceland and the Arctic.
“And this is bringing a mix of wintry hazards across the UK.”

His words come after a blanket of snow created a glorious morning as early-rising dog walkers left trails of footprints that were later followed by snowman-building children from Aigburth to Ainsdale.
There were snow-families built in Woolton and sledging youngsters in Everton Park as people made the most of the conditions.
And the frost that accompanied the white stuff failed to prevent determined runners from their work-outs, or milkmen from keeping homes stocked up with supplies – as these photos show.

The snow had been predicted by forecasters, with the Met Office having issued a yellow weather warning across the region as Storm Christoph continued to bring wintry weather.
The weather warning had said: “Snow and ice may cause travel disruption tonight and early Saturday.

“Probably some icy patches on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths, increasing the likelihood of accidents and injuries.
“Some roads and railways likely to be affected by snowfall, with longer journey times by car as well as bus and train services.”

The warning proved accurate, with a sadly fatal crash closing the M53 this morning and an accident which saw a car jammed underneath a lorry on the M6, while a lorry ploughed into a building on the snowy streets of Ainsdale.
There were 34 crashes on the North West motorway network from 7am to 5pm alone.

But while there were issues on the roads, many were able to enjoy the latest flurry to hit the region in 2021.
The Met Office says we are in for another chilly night before the wintry weather continues with snow showers forecast early Monday morning for Liverpool.
Between 12am and 3am on Monday, January 25, a light snow shower is expected.
Temperatures will drop to a chilly 1°C, rising to a high of 5°C.
