Issued For: Snowfall, Dangerous Conditions
Valid: Sunday 29th – Monday 30th January
Through the course of Sunday an advancing area of cold air will push Westwards across the United Kingdom, at the same time a weather front will attempt to push into Western areas and as this moisture clashes with the colder air it’s likely to begin to turn to snowfall. Key areas look likely to be across Wales, particularly above 250M where we could see anything up to 10cm in exposed locations, areas below this elevation are likely to see a mix of rain, sleet and snow with accumulations locally of 2-5cm, though this is deemed fairly unlikely.
Orange Zone – Weather Warning Issued: Those in the orange zone above 250M can expect to see a period of moderate-heavy snowfall through Sunday night and into Monday morning, local accumulations of up to 10cm seem likely and this could cause travel problems across higher routes, lower lying areas may see small local accumulations but a general wintry mix is more likely.
Yellow Zone – Weather Advisory Issued: A weather advisory has been issued for parts of South-West England, as this weather front begins to clear Southwards, colder air will continue to mix in and could produce some snowfall for a time, particularly across higher levels, accumulations of 5-7cm are possible locally. Lower levels again likely to see a mixture of rain, sleet and possibly snow during heavier bursts, but accumulations are unlikely here.
