Information on warnings
Warnings and forecasts
Warnings are issued when there is weather severe enough to cause disruption to the infrastructure of the UK, i.e. heavy snow affecting transport systems or heavy rain causing flooding. Strict criteria apply before a warning is issued, for example light snow showers would not warrant a warning but they would be included in a forecast.
Weather warnings guide
Forecasts are issued for general weather of every type and severity, irrespective of whether it will be disruptive or not.
