Yellow Warning of Snow and Ice

The Met Office has issued a Yellow Warning of Snow and Ice.


Issued at: 1252 on Wed 4 Feb 2015
Valid from: 1800 on Wed 4 Feb 2015
Valid to: 2355 on Thu 5 Feb 2015

Warning Text:
A wintry mix of sleet and snow showers are likely to extend inland across parts of eastern, southeastern and central England on Wednesday night into Thursday. These are likely to lead to icy stretches on untreated surfaces. Snow accumulations of 1-3 cm are also possible in places, mainly above 150 m with perhaps 8 cm over the North York Moors. Due to the showery nature of the flow many places will probably miss the snow.

The public should be aware of the potential for disruption to travel.

This is an update to start earlier on Wednesday evening with road surface temperatures falling below freezing then as well as extending the northern boundary to fully cover the North York Moors.
