Warnings

Yellow Warning for Snow/Ice in effect until 11:55 PM GMT. Source: Met Office National Severe Weather Warnings

Snow showers will affect the northwest of the UK during Thursday and Friday, although often falling as sleet and hail near windward coasts. Ice will also form in some areas overnight.

Travel delays on roads are likely, as are public transport cancellations. In a few places, mainly upland areas, vehicles may become stranded. There is a chance of power cuts, while services such as mobile phone coverage may be affected. A few rural communities may become cut off. In addition some roads and pavements will turn icy, increasing the chances of accidents or injuries.Snow showers will be heaviest and most frequent across western Scotland where a further 10-20 cm is likely to build up above 200-300
m with 30 cm possible over the very highest routes. The high ground of Northern Ireland and northern England will also see 10-15 cm building up. At low levels, parts of the warning area will see 3-7 cm of snow but some places near the west coast will see very little. Showers will be accompanied by hail and lightning at times, particularly across western Scotland. Here, in particular, there is potential for disruption to power supplies from lightning strikes. Winds will strengthen at times, particularly from later Thursday, bringing the potential for temporary blizzard conditions and drifting on hills and mountains.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 Snow/Ice in effect from Sunday, 6:00 AM GMT until Sunday, 6:00 PM GMT. Source: Met Office National Severe Weather Warnings

An area of snow is likely to move eastwards across parts of Scotland and northern England on Sunday. The snow is more likely to affect higher routes with lower levels only affected more locally. In addition, rain may fall onto frozen surfaces for a time, particularly across Scotland, following a very cold night.
Some roads and railways likely to be affected, with longer journey times by road, bus and train services.
Some injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces.
Probably some icy patches on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths.

The snow is expected to become confined to northeast Scotland later in the day as it progressively turns to rain from the southwest. Amounts of fresh snow will vary considerably across the warning area. Most of the snow is expected on higher ground with 3-6 cm likely above around 200 m and perhaps 10-15 cm locally on ground above 300 m. At lower levels 1-3 cm looks more likely, with some spots escaping altogether.

Yellow Warning for Ice in effect from Saturday, 12:05 AM GMT until Saturday, 11:00 AM GMT. Source: Met Office National Severe Weather Warnings

Ice is likely to form through Friday night and last into Saturday morning with some sleet and snow showers continuing in places.

There will probably be ice on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths, potentially resulting in some injuries from slips and falls.Sleet and snow showers will eventually become confined to areas exposed to the westerly winds overnight, but following the showers of Friday, ice will then be the main hazard, particularly on untreated surfaces. The snow showers may give an additional 1-3 cm of snow in places.The public is advised to take extra care, further information and advice can be found here: http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/warnings/
