  1. Yellow early warning of snow

    1100 on Fri 26 December
    0600 on Sat 27 December
    Updated 26 December at 08:24 Active


    An area of rain, sleet and snow is expected to spread eastwards across the area during Boxing Day before clearing during the evening and overnight. Some uncertainty surrounds how much snow will occur, but several centimetres of snow is likely even at low levels, especially in a swathe through Wales and the Midlands, where there is the potential for an amber warning. As precipitation clears, roads could turn very icy.

    The public should be aware of the potential for disruption from snow. Please watch for updates to this warning, especially if travelling.

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