Weather forecasters are predicting snow fall in Blackpool on Sunday, and have issued a warning for residents to 'be aware' of the potential disruption the white stuff would bring.

The Met Office has issued a number of warnings across the UK, and earlier today expanded the area of one of them to include the Fylde coast.

It will remain in place from 12.05am on Sunday until 11.55pm, with snow showers 'likely to continue' throughout the day.

"There is a chance of travel delays on roads with some stranded vehicles, along with delayed or cancelled rail and air travel," it said.

"There is a chance power cuts could occur. There is a small chance that some rural communities could become cut off.

"Icy surfaces may increase the risk of accidents and injuries. Significant wind chill will be another factor."

Blackpool swerved the worst of the 'Beast from the East' and has only seen a small amount of snow this winter.

This latest weather front has been dubbed 'Mini Beast from the East' by some of the media - but will we even feel its bite?
