Snow warning of yellow

Yellow warning of snow

Be aware

Valid from 09:00 on Friday until 23:50 on Friday

A band of sleet or snow showers will affect parts of northern Scotland during Friday before moving slowly southwards. Snow will be initially confined to high ground but will start falling to lower levels away from coasts. There will be large variations in accumulations due to the showery nature of the snow with some places expected to see little or no snow. However, there is the risk of several cm of snow in places, so please be aware of the potential for disruption to travel.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

A frontal zone in cold air will move slowly and erratically southwards across the area, generating rain near coasts but sleet and snow inland, with 2-6 cm of snow down to low levels locally and up to 10 cm on hills. Given its uncertain progress, there are doubts about timing and areas affected, and this warning is likely to be updated.

Wind warning of yellow

Yellow warning of wind

Be aware

Valid from 05:00 on Saturday until 12:00 on Saturday

An area of very strong winds and large waves is expected to pass close to southwest England on Saturday morning. The most likely scenario is that winds will remain light over the bulk of the area. However, please be aware that there is a low risk of gusts of 60-80 mph and large waves affecting coastal Devon and Cornwall .

Chief Forecaster's assessment

A vigorous depression is expected to run over the southwest of England on Saturday morning bringing some heavy rain in advance, and very strong winds on its southern flank. However, there is some doubt about its track, with some computer models taking it further north to allow very strong winds to affect SW England more widely, so the alert at this stage is for a low probability of disruption.
