    Warning

    Icy patches are expected to form on untreated surfaces later on Tuesday evening and overnight, following wintry showers which leave surfaces wet. These showers may also leave temporary slight accumulations of snow at lower levels in the north of the warning area, but snow is more likely to affect higher level routes, with 2 cm above 200 metres and 5 cm or so above 400 metres, although primarily on grassy surfaces. Strong winds will lead to drifting and temporary blizzard conditions on the more exposed routes.

    The public should be aware of potential hazardous traveling conditions.

A list of all UK Warnings can be found on our More UK Weather page.
