Wintry conditions continue

8 February 2009

Ice and snow can bring travel disruption

As wintry conditions continue to affect many parts of the UK, the Met Office is warning of freezing overnight temperatures leading to the risk of widespread ice on untreated roads and pavements.

As we head into a new week the attention turns to a band of heavy rain moving up across the south. This will bring a risk of flooding to southern coastal counties, and the Met Office is working closely with the Environment Agency to monitor the weather and flooding situation.

Once again there is a risk of heavy snow as the rain meets the cold air to the north, with parts of south and east Wales and the Midlands most likely to be affected.

The public is advised to stay up-to-date with the latest Met Office weather forecasts and warnings on the Met Office website.
