Yellow Warning for Snow/Ice in effect until Wednesday, 11:00 AM GMT. Source: Met Office National Severe Weather Warnings

Showers are falling as sleet, snow and hail already in the north of the warning area, and this threat spreads to parts of Wales, the Midlands and southern England on Tuesday evening and overnight into Wednesday.

The warning has been extended further south and east to cover small amounts of snow, for example in parts of southern England.

Delays to travel are possible, with a lower likelihood of cancellations of public transport. Some roads and pavements will turn icy, with an increased likelihood of some accidents and injuries.2-6 cm of snow is likely in places, especially on higher ground above 100-200 m, where a few places in the Pennines and upland Wales may see more than 10 cm. A slushy cover of 1 to 3 cm seems more likely at lower levels and closer to the western coasts, as well as across most of southern England, with some areas here seeing very little or no snow. Drifting may occur on cross-Pennine routes in the strong to gale force winds.The public is advised to take extra care, further information and advice can be found here: http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/warnings/

Yellow Warning for Wind in effect from Wednesday, 9:00 PM GMT until Thursday, 11:00 AM GMT. Source: Met Office National Severe Weather Warnings

Very strong winds will affect parts of the UK during Wednesday night and into Thursday. The strongest winds are expected to transfer eastwards across the warning area before clearing by late morning.

Road, rail and ferry services may be affected, with longer journey times and cancellations. There is also a possibility that some bridges may close. Power cuts may occur, with the potential to affect other services, such as mobile phone coverage. Injuries and danger to life from flying debris are possible, along with some damage to buildings.

In addition, large waves are expected to affect some western coasts with beach material being thrown onto sea fronts, coastal roads and properties.During Wednesday night and into Thursday there is the potential for gusts of 60-70 mph quite widely and a small chance of winds reaching 80 mph in places. The location of the most damaging winds is still uncertain, although parts of northwest England and north Wales currently look most likely. The strongest winds may then transfer to eastern parts of England by the morning. Some southern parts could still miss the worst of the conditions. Along with the strong winds a spell of heavy rain can also be expected, which could also be combined with a temporary thaw of lying snow in the north, leading to some surface water flooding in places.
