Ice warning of yellow

Yellow warning of ice

Be aware

Valid from 02:00 on Tuesday until 10:00 on Tuesday

Clearer skies and wintry showers developing later on Monday evening and during Monday night will allow road temperatures to fall below zero, leading to icy stretches on untreated surfaces. The public should be aware of the potential for hazardous driving conditions, though the risk will decrease quickly on Tuesday morning as temperatures rise again.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

Rain clearing to scattered showers later on Monday evening and during Monday night will allow road temperatures to fall below freezing leading to icy stretches on untreated surfaces. Showers could also lead to localised wash-off where roads have been treated. The showers, falling mainly across the north and west, will turn increasingly to snow over the higher routes, and perhaps to lower levels in the north, giving accumulations of 1-3 cm locally.

Wind warning of yellow

Yellow warning of wind

Be aware

Valid from 08:45 on Tuesday until 19:00 on Tuesday

Northwesterly gales will continue for parts of southern and western Scotland, and for much of Northern Ireland, northern and eastern England and north Wales during Tuesday. Gusts of 50-60 mph will occur in places, particularly in association with squally showers, and with isolated gusts to around 70 mph in exposed locations in southwest Scotland and along some coastal stretches of Northern Ireland. This warning is an update, removing much of southern England and Wales, where winds peaked overnight, and will be a little less strong today. The public should be aware of the risk of localised damage, for example to trees, and for minor disruption to travel.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

The deep area of low pressure will move away east through today but will maintain a swathe of very strong northwesterly winds across a large part of Britain, before easing this evening. Some of the strongest gusts will occur in association with squally showers, which will bring the additional hazard of hail in places, and some hill snow in the north of the warning region.
