Met Office Issues Warning With Snow And Ice Forecast To Hit Britain This Week

Met Office Issues Warning With Snow And Ice Forecast To Hit Britain This Week

So far this winter, we've damaged six umbrellas, invested in a new waterproof coat, cancelled countless plans - and don't even get us started on the state of our hair.

But the treacherous weather isn't over yet, as the Met Office has issued two new weather warnings for snow and ice this week, beginning today and continuing into Thursday.

Yellow weather warnings are in place for snow and ice throughout Scotland and the north of England, while a yellow weather warning for ice has been issued for Northern Ireland.

Those living in Yorkshire, the north east of England and parts of the north west of England will all be affected, while the rest of the country will experience very cold temperatures tonight and into tomorrow. Brrr!

The Met Office have warned that roads and railways will likely be affected - so it's best to leave extra time for journeys by road, bus and train.

They've also advised the public to be extra vigilant in icy conditions and to take precautions to avoid slipping and falling on icy surfaces.

This not only refers to walkways, paths and pavements, but also roads and cycle paths - especially in untreated areas.

A Met Office spokesperson told Tyla: "There are snow and ice warnings out for the northern half of the UK, kicking in at nine o'clock tonight and into tomorrow morning until around 10am.

"This evening, there will be organised showers and rain pushing across Scotland, northern England and Northern Ireland.

"There is a risk these showers will fall as sleet and snow - around 2cm is likely. As these clear, the surfaces will remain wet and it is a cold night tonight, so there is a risk of ice overnight which could leave some tricky driving conditions tomorrow on untreated surfaces."

Brollies and de-icer at the ready... again!
