Snow warning of yellow

Yellow warning of snow

Be aware

Valid from 15:00 on Wednesday until 23:55 on Thursday

A cold and increasingly showery northwesterly flow is expected to develop during Wednesday and last through Thursday. Accumulating snow is likely away from windward coastal districts, especially overnight, with 2-5 cm locally at low levels. Higher ground, above about 150 m, could see in excess of 10 cm. Strong and gusty winds will likely accompany snow showers, and lead to significantly reduced visibility at times. The public should be aware of the potential for disruption to travel.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

An active cold front is expected to push southeast across the UK during Wednesday introducing an increasingly cold and unstable air mass. Showers will become frequent and heavy, increasingly falling as snow in the north and west, and driven well inland by strong to gale force northwesterly winds. Accumulating snow is likely, especially overnight. This warning will be updated on Monday.
