Ice warning of yellow

Yellow warning of ice

Be aware

Valid from 21:00 on Sunday until 09:00 on Monday

Icy stretches are expected to form on untreated surfaces later on Sunday evening and overnight into Monday morning. In addition, scattered wintry showers may give slight snowfalls on higher ground in the west of the area. Please be aware of these wintry hazards and the potential for some difficult driving conditions overnight and into the Monday morning rush hour.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

As winds ease and skies clear during Sunday evening, temperatures will fall with ice readily forming on untreated surfaces. Some wintry showers are still possible overnight, mainly in the west of the warning area, and could give a few cm of snow mainly above 300-400 m, while adding to the ice risk at lower levels.
