UK Warnings

Issued by the Met Office

YELLOW WARNING of ICE and SNOW for Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales, northern England and northern parts of The Midlands.

29 January at 12:25

Valid from: 1030 on Thursday 29 January

To: 1100 on Friday 30 January

Showers of sleet, snow and hail will continue through the rest of Thursday and into Friday morning, although at lower levels there will be a gradual trend towards rain and sleet from Thursday evening onwards. This will bring a risk of further snow, especially on higher ground, along with icy stretches on untreated surfaces.

The public should be aware of the potential for disruption to travel.

This is an update to the warning issued on Monday to extend the warning a little further southeast into parts of the Midlands, and also to include ice as a hazard.

YELLOW WARNING of SNOW and ICE for southwest England, central southern England, East Anglia and southern parts of The Midlands.

Valid from: 1500 on Thursday 29 January

To: 1100 on Friday 30 January

Showers during Thursday afternoon and evening are expected to fall increasingly as sleet, snow and hail. This may settle in places, especially from late afternoon and more especially on high ground. In addition, a more persistent spell of rain, sleet and and snow may affect the west and south of the yellow area during the early hours of Friday morning. Most areas are unlikely to see large amounts of snow but icy stretches are likely to form on untreated surfaces.

The public should be aware of the risk of some travel disruption and difficult driving conditions.

YELLOW WARNING of SNOW for Northern Ireland and parts of western, central and northern Scotland.

Valid from: 1200 on Saturday 31 January

To: 2345 on Saturday 31 January

Further snow showers will affect parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland from Saturday afternoon and through Sunday leading to some locally large accumulations. These will be associated with strong winds so drifting and temporary blizzard conditions are likely.

The public should be aware of the potential for disruption from these conditions. This alert is likely to be updated in the coming days.

YELLOW WARNING of SNOW for Northern Ireland, Wales, Scotland, southwest England and coastal fringes of East ANglia and northeast England.

Valid from: 0015 on Sunday 01 January

To: 2345 on Monday 01 February

Further snow showers will affect parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland on Sunday leading to some locally large accumulations and the showers may spread along eastern and western coasts of England and Wales. The showers will be associated with strong winds so drifting and temporary blizzard conditions are possible as well as icy stretches. The public should be aware of the potential for disruption from these conditions.

Snow showers are likely to continue to affect similar areas into Monday bringing further accumulations. Meanwhile, there is a risk of a more persistent spell of rain, sleet and snow affecting Wales, the Midlands and southwest England on Monday. This alert has therefore been extended into Monday and now covers these additional areas, but this is more uncertain and therefore further updates are likely in the coming days.
