Region: Orkney & Shetland

Warning

Further snow showers are expected on Thursday, accompanied by very low temperatures.There is the possibility of travel delays on roads, stranding some vehicles and passengers, and delays or cancellations to rail and air travel. Some rural communities could become or remain cut off. Power cuts may occur and other services, such as mobile phones, may be affected.

Chief Forecaster

Snow showers will bring variable snow cover, with the potential for a further 5-10 cm and possibly 15 cm of snow in places where showers are most frequent, whereas some places nearby will receive only small amounts. Strong winds will likely lead to drifting of lying snow, as well as a severe wind chill.This warning has been updated again, to allow for 1 to 4 cm during the early hours of Thursday in areas northwest of London, and also further west across the north Midlands, just touching Wales near Wrecsam.The warning should be viewed alongside the embedded Red Warning for central Scotland and the Amber Warning over parts of northern England and Scotland.

Warning

Frequent and heavy snow showers are expected on Wednesday and Thursday leading to some significant accumulations developing.Long delays and cancellations on bus, rail and air travel could occur. Roads may become blocked by deep snow, with many stranded vehicles and passengers. Some rural communities might be cut off for several days.

Chief Forecaster

Snow showers will bring variable snow cover, but parts of northeast England and Scotland are expected to see the most frequent snow showers.During this time, 5-10 cm of snow is expected quite widely. Where showers become organised though, most likely across Scotland and over the hills of northern England, some places are likely to have an additional 15-25 cm of snow, locally as much as 40 cm. Strong winds will lead to drifting of snow and severe wind chill, while lightning could be an additional hazard, particularly near coasts.This warning has been updated to extend the area further west over parts of Scotland.

Region: Wales

Warning

A spell of heavy snow is expected to move north across Southwest England and Wales through Thursday afternoon and evening. Some places could also see significant ice build up overnight into Friday. The snow is likely to be accompanied by strong easterly winds.Long delays and cancellations to public transport is expected, whilst some roads may become blocked by deep snow, stranding vehicles and passengers. Long interruptions to power supplies and other utilities are likely to occur.

Chief Forecaster

Widespread snow is expected to develop through Thursday afternoon and evening, accompanied by strong easterly winds, leading to drifting of lying snow in places. Around 10-20 cm is likely to fall quite widely, with the potential for up to 50 cm over parts of Dartmoor and Exmoor.As less cold air follows from the south, there is a chance of snow turning to freezing rain in places, with widespread icy stretched forming making driving conditions dangerous.The warning has been updated to reflect the growing confidence of a severe spell of weather and to remove parts of North Wales and Southeast England.

Chief Forecaster

A weather system is expected to move slowly north through Thursday, initially affecting the south of the warning area before intensifying and pushing north across the rest of the warning area later on.

Snow showers will bring variable snow cover, with the potential for a further 5-10 cm and possibly 15 cm of snow in places where showers are most frequent, whereas some places nearby will receive only small amounts. Strong winds will likely lead to drifting of lying snow, as well as a severe wind chill.This warning has been updated again, to allow for 1 to 4 cm during the early hours of Thursday in areas northwest of London, and also further west across the north Midlands, just touching Wales near Wrecsam.The warning should be viewed alongside the embedded Red Warning for central Scotland and the Amber Warning over parts of northern England and Scotland.

Region: North East England

Warning

Frequent and heavy snow showers are expected on Wednesday and Thursday leading to some significant accumulations developing.Long delays and cancellations on bus, rail and air travel could occur. Roads may become blocked by deep snow, with many stranded vehicles and passengers. Some rural communities might be cut off for several days. Long interruptions to power supplies and other services such as telephone and mobile phone networks, could occur.

Chief Forecaster

Snow showers will bring variable snow cover, but parts of northeast England and Scotland are expected to see the most frequent snow showers.During this time, 5-10 cm of snow is expected quite widely. Where showers become organised though, most likely across Scotland and over the hills of northern England, some places are likely to have an additional 15-25 cm of snow, locally as much as 40 cm. Strong winds will lead to drifting of snow and severe wind chill, while lightning could be an additional hazard, particularly near coasts.This warning has been updated to extend the area further west over parts of Scotland.

Warning

A spell of heavy snow is expected to move north across Southwest England and Wales through Thursday afternoon and evening. Some places could also see significant ice build up overnight into Friday. The snow is likely to be accompanied by strong easterly winds.Long delays and cancellations to public transport is expected, whilst some roads may become blocked by deep snow, stranding vehicles and passengers. Long interruptions to power supplies and other utilities are likely to occur.

Chief Forecaster

Widespread snow is expected to develop through Thursday afternoon and evening, accompanied by strong easterly winds, leading to drifting of lying snow in places. Around 10-20 cm is likely to fall quite widely, with the potential for up to 50 cm over parts of Dartmoor and Exmoor.As less cold air follows from the south, there is a chance of snow turning to freezing rain in places, with widespread icy stretched forming making driving conditions dangerous.The warning has been updated to reflect the growing confidence of a severe spell of weather and to remove parts of North Wales and Southeast England.
