Yellow Warning of Rain

Issued at: 12:07 on Saturday 29 December 2012

A spell of wet, very windy weather will affect the whole of the UK later Sunday and during Monday. Many western and northern regions can expect persistent rain, heavy at times, later on Sunday and during the first part of Monday, particularly over high ground. The rain will clear eastwards from these areas by Monday afternoon, but at the same time extending eastwards across southern areas of England, perhaps not clearing some southern counties of England until evening.

The public should be aware of possible disruption, particularly to travel, and also of the potential for localised flooding.

Yellow Warning of Ice 

Issued at: 11:33 on Saturday 29 December 2012

Valid from: 02:00 on Sunday 30 December 2012

Valid to: 11:00 on Sunday 30 December 2012

There will be an increasing risk of icy stretches from the early hours of Sunday morning, especially on higher routes. Showers will cause wash-off of salt, so even previously treated roads are at risk. As the air turns colder the showers will also become wintry at times with the risk of a few cm of snow mainly on ground above 300m.

The public should be aware of possible hazards due to the ice.
