Valid: Sunday 10th – Monday 11th February 2013

Issued For: Snowfall

Forecast Detail:

Warnings-Panel---NewAn area of low pressure sliding South-Eastwards across the country on Sunday overnight into Monday will bring the risk of snowfall to some areas. Initially the risk of snow will be across higher ground but the snow signal becomes more widespread into Sunday evening across the Midlands and into parts of Eastern England.

50% Risk Zone

This area is currently thought to be at highest risk from disruption during Sunday evening into Monday as rain and sleet turns increasingly to snow. Accumulations of 5-10cm cannot be ruled out for some, with higher ground seeing accumulations locally higher. Due to the continued uncertainty it’s quite probable that this area will be extended in future updates.

40% Risk Zone

This area is likely to see a mixture of rain, sleet and snow although disruption is expected to be less. Accumulations of 3-7cm cannot be ruled out with higher ground such as the Scottish Highlands and Western Pennines possibly seeing locally higher totals. Given model uncertainty it’s possible that this zone could be extended to cover parts of South-West England in future updates although emphasis remains North of the M4 for now.
