Valid to: 12:00 on Tuesday 1 December 2015

Rain will move northeast across Scotland and North East England on Tuesday morning, falling initially as snow which will accumulate in places. Rain may also fall onto frozen surfaces for a time, which could result in very icy conditions Snow accumulations at low-levels will vary across the warning area, though up to 2cm are possible, with 5cm above 200m and 10cm or more above 500m. Snow will turn to rain again as much milder conditions follow from the southwest by the afternoon.

The public are advised to be aware that there could be some disruption to travel

Chief Forecaster’s Assessment

After a cold night, warm and moist air will spread back northeast on Tuesday morning, with rain falling as snow for several hours, especially over high ground. This is most likely across Scotland. Across North East England the situation remains more finely balanced and some low-level areas here may see little or no snow, particularly towards the south of the warning area.  As such, this warning will be kept under review and updated as necessary.
