Yellow Warning Detail

Snow showers will feed off the North Sea into many northern and eastern areas of the UK.

Whilst some areas in the warning area will remain largely dry, some persistent bands of showers are likely to develop in places. Daily accumulations of 2-5 cm are probable for some, with 10-15 cm plausible in areas where showers merge into more organised and prolonged spells of snow.

Some icy stretches are possible overnight, mainly where melting snow during the afternoon has not a chance to dry out before freezing overnight, although snow is likely to be more prevalent.
