UPDATED, Match ON – Snow warning for Burnley game

If anyone just saw the BBC Weather forecast they have a severe weather warning out for heavy snow in the West Midlands for early tomorrow morning.

The forecaster has just said a possibility of up to 10CM for our area, it is the last thing we want for the game to be cancelled tomorrow and lets just hope it will not be as bad as that.

Official warning from the Met Office

Sleet and snow will spread eastwards across parts of the West Midlands and northwest England during Sunday morning, giving widespread accumulations of 2 to 6 cm, and locally up to 10 cm. This will also lead to widespread ice on roads and pavements.

The public are advised to take extra care and refer to the Highways Agency for further advice on traffic disruption on motorways and trunk roads.

Issued at: 1749 Sat 20 Feb

– 08:45 – Snow has fallen, I live 3 miles from Villa Park and around 4-5 cm of the stuff has fallen. However already it is starting to melt away, think we will be all OK

UPDATED – 09:45 – Official Site has confirmed match definitely on

  1. Same here in Solihull… two inches at most but it is melting. I just hope the health and safety jobsworths aren’t examining the surrounding area for the odd flake or two!

    I remember in the seventies and eighties, walking to Villa Park because the buses couldn’t get along the roads because of snow. Once at the ground they’d only cleared the lines away and played with a bright orange ball! Not the most memorable games to watch but they were certainly different!!
