Snow warning of yellow

Yellow warning of snow

Be aware

Valid from 00:05 on Sunday until 12:00 on Sunday

Further outbreaks of sleet and snow are expected through Saturday night and Sunday morning, with some heavy snow likely at times, especially over higher routes. Please be aware of difficult travelling conditions and the risk of some disruption to transport. There remains some uncertainty in the details and this warning will be updated as required.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

A front will continue to move gradually southwards on Saturday night and Sunday morning. Further accumulations of snow are expected over southeastern Scotland with this snow extending into parts of northeast England during Sunday morning. A further 2 to 4 cm of snow is possible at lower levels, mainly away from the immediate coastal strip, with 5 to 10 cm above 200 m and perhaps as much as 15 cm on the highest routes above 300 m.
