Severe Weather Warnings: Snow

Date

   00:02, 03.03.2018

valid from

until

Region: Orkney & Shetland

Warning

Snow showers are expected to continue over parts of northern Britain, bringing further accumulations of snow and a risk of icy stretches.Further delays to travel and public transport could occur, whilst some rural communities could become or remain cut off. Further impacts to power supplies/mobile phone coverage are also possible.

Chief Forecaster

Frequent snow showers are likely to continue feeding in from the North Sea on a very cold easterly wind. Due to the nature of showers, some places are expected to receive an additional 5-10 cm of snow per day, whereas other places nearby may only receive small amounts. Strong winds will lead to severe drifting of lying snow in places, as well as a severe wind chill, although these are expected to begin to ease through Friday night.This is an update to remove much of both southwest Scotland and northeast England where snow showers have largely died out.

Region: Northern Ireland

Warning

Following earlier spells of rain and snow, icy patches are likely on untreated surfaces during Saturday morning. As a result, driving conditions may become difficult and there is an increased chance of injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces. In addition, further outbreaks of sleet or snow could occur in places, mainly parts of Wales, central and eastern England.

Chief Forecaster

A combination of low temperatures and surfaces likely to be wet, from earlier rain and snow or a partial thaw of lying snow, will lead to icy stretches forming on untreated surfaces. A further 1-3 cm of snow occur in places. This warning has been updated to remove the south coastal strip where less cold air is expected to edge in on Friday night.
