Storm Caroline To Disrupt Weekend Action?

Storm Caroline To Disrupt Weekend Action?

Fans are being urged to pay attention to the weather reports this weekend with parts of the United Kingdom set for snow.

Storm Caroline has already seen large winds hit parts of the UK and today Northern Ireland, Scotland and the north of England were blanketed in snow and it's expected that this will continue tomorrow and possibly in more southern areas as well.

That's not withstanding any potential freeze owing to the temperatures.

The Met Office expect Saturday to be another day of 'frequently blustery snow and hail showers' in northern and western parts of the UK in particular - with the expectation that Wales and the West Midlands will certainly be hit.

The Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Sunderland game is already in doubt with staff and fan volunteers welcomed to the Molineux early on to help clear any snowfall and that certainly won't be the only game that faces an early pitch inspection.

A statement from Wolves read.

'At this stage, advice to fans is to start making plans to arrive as early as possible ahead of the game as the inclement weather will disrupt travel plans and will increase congestion around the stadium.'

Again, they won't be the only club encouraging fans to turn up early this weekend.
