Yellow Warning of Snow and Ice for West Midlands

Yellow Warning of Snow and Ice for West Midlands : Herefordshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Stoke-on-Trent, Telford and Wrekin, Warwickshire, West Midlands Conurbation & Worcestershire valid from 0005 Friday 02 March to 2355 Fri 02 March 2018

Chief Forecaster’s assessment

Whilst snow showers over Northern Ireland are likely to ease, further more persistent snow could move north into southern Britain later, giving a few cm in places. However, there remains significant uncertainty regarding this aspect. This warning has been updated to remove the west of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. A reference to blowing around of existing snow cover has been added.

There is the potential for travel delays on roads, with some stranded vehicles and passengers, as well as delays or cancellations to rail and air travel. Some rural communities could become cut off. Power cuts may also occur and other services, such as mobile phones, may be affected.
