Met Office Issues Yellow Weather Warning For Tuesday – Ice

Please Note: There already is a Yellow Weather Warning for snow in place for Tuesday, click here to view.

Issued at: 12:35 on Monday 21 January 2013

Valid from: 00:05 on Tuesday 22 January 2013

Valid to: 23:55 on Tuesday 22 January 2013

As temperatures fall below freezing on Monday night into Tuesday morning icy stretches are likely on untreated surfaces especially in areas where any further sleet, snow or rain has fallen on Monday. In addition, further rain reaching the extreme southwest on Monday night will lead to an enhanced risk of ice in southwest England. This may extend north and east into parts of Wales on Tuesday and move east to affect some other parts of southern England, readily turning to sleet and snow, giving further localised snow accumulation. Further snow flurries may affect east coasts. However the extent of any wintry precipitation is very uncertain at this stage.

The public should be aware of the risk of travel disruption. Please see the yellow warning of snow which gives an idea of the areas considered more at risk.
