    Weather forecasters have identified nine cities in the UK that have a 90% snow risk over the next 24 hours.

    Almost all corners of the country have seen the white stuff this week as widespread Arctic conditions returned for the first time since January.

    Large swathes of the country remain under Met Office weather warnings, with the forecasting agency forced to issue two more amber-level alerts on Thursday (March 9).

    They apply to Wales and Northern Ireland, with another amber warning still in place for a large chunk of northern England.

    The Met Office has said some regions under the amber warnings could see 40cm (16 inches) of snow on the ground come the end of Friday (March 10).

    More snow looks set to bombard Brits over the next 24 hours, and forecasters at Netweather have identified exactly where it's most likely to be and exactly when it's most likely to strike.

    Luckily for those in the south, the upcoming snow all appears to be headed for the Midlands, northern England, Northern Ireland and Scotland.

    According to Netweather, there is a 90% snow risk in Birmingham and Nottingham from 7am to 9am on Friday.

    In Yorkshire, Leeds' snow looks to be coming from 3am and 9am, whereas Sheffield has been identified as a 90% snow risk from 5am to 10am.

    The north-west also appears to be in the firing line. Netweather say there's a 90% snow risk in Manchester from 4am to 6am on Friday, and in Liverpool from 4am to 7am.

    For Newcastle in the north-east it's 6am to 8am.

    Scotland is also due snow but on Thursday evening, according to Netweather. Glasgow has been identified as a 90% snow risk at 8pm, and Edinburgh at 7pm.

    Belfast has not been graded as a 90% risk over the next 24 hours, although the forecasters say there is a 68% risk for much of Thursday evening and Friday morning.

    In the east, Norwich is said to have a 54% snow risk at midday on Friday. Further south the snow risk dwindles, with the south coast seemingly completely in the clear.

    WX Charts' advanced weather modelling maps tell much the same story, showing a huge blizzard stretching across the middle and north of the UK on Friday morning.

    They also identify a second snow front coming to northern England and Scotland late on Saturday (March 11), although Netweather don't grade the snow risk then as high as they do on Friday.
