Ice warning of yellow

Yellow warning of ice

Be aware

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

Daytime showers will clear away to the south through Sunday afternoon and evening. Clearing skies following across all parts will allow both air and road temperatures to quickly fall below freezing. Icy stretches are likely to form on untreated roads and pavements. As a result, the public should be aware of the risk of tricky conditions.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

A band of rain, sleet and snow showers is currently pushing south across many eastern areas of England. Much clearer weather is expected to follow this evening which will allow temperatures to quickly fall below freezing, with ice forming on untreated surfaces. Later in the night, rain, sleet or snow showers may return to coastal parts of Norfolk, perhaps exacerbating the ice risk here.

Yellow warning of snow and ice

Be aware

Valid from 13:00 on Saturday until 12:00 on Sunday

Snow and strong winds will affect parts of northern and then eastern Britain later on Saturday and into Sunday. Heavy snow will affect upland parts of northern Scotland from Saturday afternoon, with accumulations of over 25 cm on some high level routes. At lower levels, there will be a mix of rain, sleet and snow, though snow accumulations of 2-5 cm are possible in places, mainly inland above 150 m. Northerly winds gusting 60-70 mph will give rise to drifting snow and blizzard conditions. Conditions will improve slowly overnight, but further snow showers are likely, even on low ground. Other eastern areas will see occasional snow showers on Saturday before more persistent rain, sleet and snow spreads southwards overnight, with potential for 2-3 cm of snow at low levels, and 5-10 cm over northern hills where again blizzard conditions are possible. Icy patches are likely throughout the warning area. The public should be aware of the risk of disruption due to snow and ice.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

An area of low pressure moves south through the North Sea later on Saturday and early on Sunday, bringing strong winds and a risk of snow to some northern and later eastern areas. There is high confidence in very poor conditions over higher ground in Scotland. Less certain is the extent of snow at lower levels given that rain and sleet is also possible, but there is potential for local accumulations of several cm even in parts of eastern England, particularly on higher ground. Showers will become confined to eastern coasts from late morning, where they will mainly be of rain.

Be aware

An area of persistent sleet and snow reaching Northwest Scotland and the Northern Isles by late Monday afternoon will spread southeastwards on Monday night. 2-5 cm of snow is likely even to low levels and an additional 10 cm of snow is possible over higher ground in Northern Ireland, Northern Scotland, and across Shetland. Clearer weather with more scattered snow showers will follow south on Tuesday morning, and falling temperatures will allow icy stretches to form particularly where snowfall has been wet. The public should be aware of the risk of difficult driving conditions and some travel disruption.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

A shallow area of low pressure forming near Iceland will move southeast towards Scotland later on Monday and will push its associated fronts across the country, clearing the south by Tuesday afternoon. With a cold northerly airstream already established, precipitation will be mainly of snow, with any rain brief and confined to western coasts. The heaviest snow will affect Northwest Scotland and the Northern Isles on Monday evening, with southern and eastern Scotland and Northern Ireland affected overnight, the snow lingering across the far south well into Tuesday morning.

Showers of sleet and snow will affect the area, bringing local accumulations of a couple of centimetres, mainly on hills, as well as a risk of icy patches. The public should be aware of locally tricky driving conditions.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

A northerly flow will bring an air mass of arctic origin over the area. Showers will falls as snow inland and over hills, though may remain as rain or sleet near coasts. However, this increases the risk of icy patches.

Snow warning of yellow

Yellow warning of snow

Be aware

Valid from 00:05 on Wednesday until 23:55 on Wednesday

Snow showers will continue to affect many eastern and northeastern parts of the UK through Wednesday. The focus of showers is likely to transfer from eastern Scotland to parts of eastern and southeastern England, as well as some central areas of England, through the day. Some heavy snow showers are possible. Local accumulations of 1-3 cm are likely away from immediate coasts, with locally more than this over higher ground such as the North York Moors and Lincolnshire Wolds. The public should be aware for the potential of disruption to travel.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

The very cold air mass is likely to continue to affect much of the UK during Wednesday. Along the eastern coasts of both Scotland and England, snow showers are likely in a strong northeasterly wind. Snow showers are likely to ease through the day across eastern Scotland and northeast England, whilst conversely shower activity is likely to increase across other parts of eastern England, with some snow showers being driven inland at times.
