    Updated 29 January at 10:43 Active

    Warning

    Showers during Thursday afternoon and evening are expected to fall increasingly as sleet, snow and hail.

    0700 on Fri 30 January
    Updated 29 January at 14:40

    Warning

    Strong northwesterly winds are expected to develop across parts of South Wales and southwest England this evening, persisting overnight, before gradually easing tomorrow morning. Inland gusts are likely to widely reach 50-60 mph, with 70 mph possible along exposed coasts and over high ground.
    The public should be aware of the possibility of disruption to travel, with difficult driving conditions, particularly for high-sided vehicles.

  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.

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