Snow warning of yellow Ice warning of yellow

Yellow warning of snow and ice

Be aware

Valid from 18:00 on Sunday until 10:00 on Monday

Showers, heavy at times, will turn increasingly wintry overnight on Sunday into Monday morning. Snow will fall to lower levels in places in Scotland and Northern Ireland, with localised accumulations of 2 to 6 cm, while snow-cover will be more widespread over hills here, with around 10 cm possible above around 400m, especially in the west. Northern areas of England and Wales will see snow chiefly over higher ground, with more than 5 cm in places but with slight accumulations possible at low levels too. Ice will be an additional hazard across much of northern Britain. The public are advised to be aware of tricky travel conditions generally, and possible disruption to transport.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

A cold westerly flow, originally sourced from Canada, brings a mix of sleet, snow and hail showers later on Sunday and overnight. Once we lose the effects of daytime sunshine, snow will start to accumulate more widely, and along with ice may present some problems, in particular for road travel on Monday morning. This seems most likely for parts of Scotland, Northern Ireland and cross Pennine routes. Problems should reduce steadily further into Monday morning, as the March sunshine gets to work on melting the snow, although taking until mid to late morning across upland parts of Scotland.
