Snow warning of yellow Ice warning of yellow

Yellow warning of snow and ice

Be aware

Valid from 10:30 on Thursday until 11:00 on Friday

Showers of sleet, snow and hail will continue through the rest of Thursday and into Friday morning, although at lower levels there will be a gradual trend towards rain and sleet from Thursday evening onwards. This will bring a risk of further snow, especially on higher ground, along with icy stretches on untreated surfaces. The public should be aware of the potential for disruption to travel. This is an update to the warning issued on Monday to extend the warning a little further southeast into parts of the Midlands, and also to include ice as a hazard.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

The cold northwesterly flow will continue to feed heavy showers in across Scotland, Northern Ireland, northern England, the Midlands and Wales through Thursday. This will lead to further snow accumulations of 1 to 3 cm at low levels and 5 to 10 cm above 200 m. Not all areas will see snow though, and the risk is rather lower for parts of eastern Scotland. During Thursday night and into Friday settling snow is likely to become more confined to higher ground in some areas as the airmass becomes a little less cold. However, a small area of low pressure is expected to move southeastwards and bring a more persistent spell of rain, sleet and snow to parts of western Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and the Midlands. This likely to lead to further accumulations of snow, especially on high ground, whilst also increasing the risk of ice. The track of this system is a little uncertain at present and this warning may be adjusted as and when necessary.

Snow warning of yellow

Yellow warning of snow

Be aware

Valid from 12:00 on Saturday until 23:45 on Saturday

Further snow showers will affect parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland from Saturday afternoon and through Sunday leading to some locally large accumulations. These will be associated with strong winds so drifting and temporary blizzard conditions are likely. The public should be aware of the potential for disruption from these conditions. This alert is likely to be updated in the coming days.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

Following a temporary less cold period on Friday and into Saturday morning a very cold airmass will spread southwards across Scotland and Northern Ireland on Saturday afternoon accompanied by strong winds. Frequent showers are likely to form in this airmass, pushing into the highlighted areas and with the cold air snow is likely to accumulate, even to low levels. Periods of enhanced snowfall are possible within this general flow but details of these are very uncertain at this time. As such this alert is likely to be updated and refined in the coming days to better represent individual features. There is the potential for disruption throughout this period due to the accumulating snow and ice but also with temporary blizzard conditions leading to very difficult driving conditions.

Snow warning of yellow

Yellow warning of snow

Be aware

Valid from 00:15 on Sunday until 23:45 on Monday

Further snow showers will affect parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland on Sunday leading to some locally large accumulations and the showers may spread along eastern and western coasts of England and Wales. The showers will be associated with strong winds so drifting and temporary blizzard conditions are possible as well as icy stretches. The public should be aware of the potential for disruption from these conditions. Snow showers are likely to continue to affect similar areas into Monday bringing further accumulations. Meanwhile, there is a risk of a more persistent spell of rain, sleet and snow affecting Wales, the Midlands and southwest England on Monday. This alert has therefore been extended into Monday and now covers these additional areas, but this is more uncertain and therefore further updates are likely in the coming days.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

A very cold airmass will continue to spread southwards from Scotland and Northern Ireland across the remainder of the UK on Sunday accompanied by strong winds. Frequent showers are likely to form in this airmass, primarily affecting northern parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland but also running along eastern and western coastal districts of England and Wales at times. With the cold air snow is likely to accumulate even to low levels wherever showers affect. Periods of enhanced snowfall are possible within this general flow, with parts of Wales, the Midlands and southwest England at greater risk on Monday, but details of these are very uncertain at this time. As such this alert is likely to be updated and refined in the coming days to better represent individual features. There is the potential for disruption throughout this period due to the accumulating snow and ice but also with temporary blizzard conditions leading to very difficult driving conditions.
