The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for snow and ice. Valid from 04:00 Tue 16th to 11:00 Wed 17th January. Showers will turn to sleet, snow and hail late on Monday night across northern England, and then affect parts of Wales and the Midlands Tuesday evening and overnight into Wednesday. Delays to travel are possible, with a lower likelihood of cancellations of public transport. Some roads and pavements will turn icy, with an increased likelihood of accident and injury.
There is also a separate yellow warning for wind which covers the whole of Wales, valid between 21:00 Wed 17th and 13:00 Thu 18th. Very strong winds will affect parts of the UK during Wednesday night and into Thursday. The strongest winds are expected to transfer eastwards across the warning area before clearing by early afternoon. Road, rail and ferry services may be affected, with longer journey times and cancellations. There is also a possibility that some bridges may close. Power cuts may occur, with the potential to affect other services, such as mobile phone coverage. Injuries and danger to life from flying debris are possible, along with some damage to buildings. In addition, large waves are expected to affect some western coasts with beach material being thrown onto sea fronts, coastal roads and properties.
