Warning for Snow

Issued at: 11:38 on Saturday 19 January 2013

Valid from: 00:05 on Saturday 19 January 2013

Valid to: 13:00 on Sunday 20 January 2013

Further sleet and snow showers will lead to accumulations of snow in places away from the immediate coastal strip, with ice an additional hazard. A further 2 to 6 cm of snow could fall in a few areas.

The public should be aware of the continuing poor travel conditions.

Warning for Ice

Issued at: 12:09 on Saturday 19 January 2013

Valid from: 00:05 on Saturday 19 January 2013

Although some further slight snowfalls are likely, with 1 to 2 cm of fresh snow in a few places, the focus switches to ice, with near or sub-zero temperatures persisting quite widely. This is particularly the case over existing snow cover, where some very low night-time temperatures are possible, should skies clear.

The public should be aware of the risk of localised difficult travel conditions due either to existing snow cover, or to icy surfaces.
