Met Office spokeswoman Nicky Maxey said there was potential for further yellow warnings to be issued as a result of that front, with a chance of gale force winds.

Just as we thought it was starting to warm up again after the winter misery of the past few weeks, the mercury is set to drop again in the coming days.

Heavier snow is expected to fall throughout much of Friday and into Saturday on even higher ground across parts of central, eastern and northern Scotland.

The Met Office has forecast a return to colder temperatures later this week.

The Geomagnetic Storm On March 18 To Miss Earth
According to Wonderopolis , in February 2011, a CME produced a solar flare that "disrupted radio communications throughout China". These explosions are known as solar flares which are sudden flashes of sun's increased brightness.

A yellow weather warning for snow and ice is in place for Yorkshire from 5pm on Friday, and will last until 9am on Saturday.

For the most part it will be quite mild until Friday, but there are signs it will turn colder by the weekend.

But forecasters say it will feel more like minus 8 degrees. In some rural areas temperatures may struggle to climb above zero. However, it would not compare to the conditions caused by the so-called "beast from the east" earlier this month.

As this air crosses the North Sea snow showers will form on Sunday, and could well merge into convergence lines producing 2-5 cms of snow in places.
