    Showers of sleet, snow and hail will continue through the rest of Thursday and into Friday morning, although at lower levels there will be a gradual trend towards rain and sleet from Thursday evening onwards.

    Updated 28 January at 17:48

    Alert

    Further snow showers will affect parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland from Saturday afternoon and through Sunday leading to some locally large accumulations. These will be associated with strong winds so drifting and temporary blizzard conditions are likely.

    The public should be aware of the potential for disruption from these conditions. This alert is likely to be updated in the coming days.

  4. Yellow early warning of snow

    From:
    0015 on Sun 1 February
    To:
    2345 on Mon 2 February
    Updated 29 January at 11:32

    Alert

    Further snow showers will affect parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland on Sunday leading to some locally large accumulations and the showers may spread along eastern and western coasts of England and Wales. The showers will be associated with strong winds so drifting and temporary blizzard conditions are possible as well as icy stretches. The public should be aware of the potential for disruption from these conditions.

    Snow showers are likely to continue to affect similar areas into Monday bringing further accumulations. Meanwhile, there is a risk of a more persistent spell of rain, sleet and snow affecting Wales, the Midlands and southwest England on Monday. This alert has therefore been extended into Monday and now covers these additional areas, but this is more uncertain and therefore further updates are likely in the coming days.
