Snow warning of yellow Ice warning of yellow

Yellow warning of snow and ice

Be aware

11:35 on Tuesday until 11:00 on Wednesday

Showers are falling as sleet, snow and hail already in the north of the warning area, and this threat spreads to parts of Wales, the Midlands and southern England on Tuesday evening and overnight into Wednesday. The warning has been extended further south and east to cover small amounts of snow, for example in parts of southern England. Delays to travel are possible, with a lower likelihood of cancellations of public transport. Some roads and pavements will turn icy, with an increased likelihood of some accidents and injuries.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

2-6 cm of snow is likely in places, especially on higher ground above 100-200 m, where a few places in the Pennines and upland Wales may see more than 10 cm. A slushy cover of 1 to 3 cm seems more likely at lower levels and closer to the western coasts, as well as across most of southern England, with some areas here seeing very little or no snow. Drifting may occur on cross-Pennine routes in the strong to gale force winds.

Wind warning of yellow

Yellow warning of wind

Be aware

21:00 on Wednesday until 11:00 on Thursday

Very strong winds will affect parts of the UK during Wednesday night and into Thursday. The strongest winds are expected to transfer eastwards across the warning area before clearing by late morning. Road, rail and ferry services may be affected, with longer journey times and cancellations. There is also a possibility that some bridges may close. Power cuts may occur, with the potential to affect other services, such as mobile phone coverage. Injuries and danger to life from flying debris are possible, along with some damage to buildings. In addition, large waves are expected to affect some western coasts with beach material being thrown onto sea fronts, coastal roads and properties.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

During Wednesday night and into Thursday there is the potential for gusts of 60-70 mph quite widely and a small chance of winds reaching 80 mph in places. The location of the most damaging winds is still uncertain, although parts of northwest England and north Wales currently look most likely. The strongest winds may then transfer to eastern parts of England by the morning. Some southern parts could still miss the worst of the conditions. Along with the strong winds a spell of heavy rain can also be expected, which could also be combined with a temporary thaw of lying snow in the north, leading to some surface water flooding in places.

Snow warning of yellow

Yellow warning of snow

Be aware

18:00 on Wednesday until 09:00 on Thursday

Snow showers are expected during Wednesday evening before a spell of more persistent and possibly heavy snow develops in places during Wednesday night. Any persistent snow is most likely to clear east before dawn on Thursday but further snow showers are likely to follow. Travel delays are possible on roads with a risk that some vehicles and passengers could become stranded. Delays or cancellations are possible to rail and air travel. Some rural communities could become cut off. Power cuts may occur and other services, such as mobile phone, may be affected. This warning has been updated with the southern boundary extended further south over northern England. Also, northern parts of Northern Ireland have been added to the warning area.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

A deepening area of low pressure is expected to track east across the UK during Wednesday night and into Thursday. Across some central or northern areas, a spell of persistent and perhaps heavy snow may develop. This could see 3-8 cm of snow accumulate in places with up to 20 cm over high ground. There remains uncertainty regarding the extent and location of any heavy snowfall.
