Met Office Warnings Issued For: Cumbria

  1. Yellow warning of snow

    0015 on Sat 31 January
    2345 on Sat 31 January
    Updated 30 January at 11:32 Active


    Further sleet and snow showers will affect parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland from Saturday morning, with snow falling to lower levels and extending further south through the day. This will lead to some large accumulations on high ground, with some settling at low levels too. These will be associated with strong winds (gusts 50-60 mph across northwest Scotland) so drifting and temporary blizzard conditions are likely. Some longer spells of sleet and snow are also possible, especially across the high ground of Scotland and northeast England.

    The public should be aware of the potential for disruption from these conditions. This warning will be kept under review and updated as and when necessary.This is an update to bring forward the start time of the warning and extend the area southwards.

  2. Yellow warning of ice

    0215 on Sat 31 January
    1100 on Sat 31 January
    Updated 31 January at 02:06 Active


    Icy stretches are likely to form on untreated surfaces on Friday evening, overnight and into Saturday morning. In addition, further accumulations of snow continue to be seen in places as bands of showers move southwards across the UK with temporary accumulations of 0-2 cm even in southern England this morning and the public should be aware of the risk of disruption due to difficult driving conditions.

    This is an update to the earlier warning to include temporary accumulations of snow further south across England and Wales this morning.

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