Snow warning of yellow Ice warning of yellow

Yellow warning of snow and ice

Be aware

Valid from 03:05 on Sunday until 12:00 on Sunday

Showers of sleet and snow are likely to continue during Sunday morning, leading to further accumulations of 2-5 cm of snow in places, mainly across northern and northeastern Scotland and the Pennines, with ice an additional hazard, particularly where skies clear after overnight showers. Please be aware of the potential for difficult travelling conditions. This warning has been updated to include a larger part of Aberdeenshire and eastern England as far south as central Lincolnshire.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

An area of more frequent rain, sleet and snow over parts northeastern England will continue into Sunday morning introducing an increased ice risk on untreated surfaces where skies become clear until a couple of hours after dawn. Meanwhile, a cold northeasterly flow has become established across much of Scotland with sleet and snow showers affecting areas exposed to the northeast. During Sunday morning, these showers will become more frequent over the far north of Scotland and the Northern Isles.
