Met Office Issues Yellow Weather Warning – Snow

Issued at: 11:21 on Sunday 10 March 2013

Valid from: 16:00 on Sunday 10 March 2013

Valid to: 10:00 on Monday 11 March 2013

Snow showers will affect many eastern parts of the UK during Sunday evening and overnight into Monday, the showers moving well inland on strong northeasterly winds.

Accumulations of snow will be very variable, as the showers are expected to become aligned into bands, with some places seeing 2-5 cm of snow and possibly as much as 10 cm in a few places in eastern Scotland and northeast England by Monday morning. Lying snow will drift in the fresh to strong north-easterly winds.

Ice will be an additional hazard, particularly in Scotland and northeast England where there has been melting between showers during Sunday.

The public should be aware of the risk of disruption to travel.
