Snow forecast to fall in Cumbria

The icy blast is set to continue in Cumbria for the next few days with snow expected to fall on Friday.

Thermometers are set to plummet, with many parts of the county struggling to see temperatures rise above freezing.

In Carlisle earlier today temperatures were -2C.

A weather front moving across the UK tomorrow night is set to bring the biggest snowfall of the winter.

Gemma Plumb, a forecaster with MeteoGroup, said: “We are looking at 5cms to 10cms (2ins-4ins) falling quite widely across the country on Friday, with more than that across higher ground.”

Temperatures on Friday in Cumbria will be 1C in the day and -2C at night. The Highways Agency is warning motorists to take extra care on icy roads.

Would you have welcomed a new Sunday rail service from Carlisle to west Cumbria?

I'd use local rail services more often but they're unreliable and expensive

I would have used the Sunday service

Our rail services are way behind most other countries. No wonder we rely so heavily on cars
