Met Office warnings issued for Sunderland

  1. Active

    Yellow warning of snow

    Updated 31 January at 10:50
    From:
    1300 on Sat 31 January
    To:
    1200 on Sun 1 February

    Snow and strong winds will affect parts of northern and then eastern Britain later on Saturday and into Sunday. Heavy snow will affect upland parts of northern Scotland from Saturday afternoon, with accumulations of over 25 cm on some high level routes. At lower levels, there will be a mix of rain, sleet and snow, though snow accumulations of 2-5 cm are possible in places, mainly inland above 150 m. Northerly winds gusting 60-70 mph will give rise to drifting snow and blizzard conditions. Conditions will improve slowly overnight, but further snow showers are likely, even on low ground.

    Other eastern areas will see occasional snow showers on Saturday before more persistent rain, sleet and snow spreads southwards overnight, with potential for 2-3 cm of snow at low levels, and 5-10 cm over northern hills where again blizzard conditions are possible.Icy patches are likely throughout the warning area.

    The public should be aware of the risk of disruption due to snow and ice.

    1800 on Sun 1 February
    To:
    1000 on Mon 2 February

    Daytime showers will clear away to the south through Sunday afternoon and evening. Clearing skies following across all parts will allow both air and road temperatures to quickly fall below freezing. Icy stretches are likely to form on untreated roads and pavements.

    As a result, the public should be aware of the risk of tricky conditions.

    From:

    To:
    1000 on Tue 3 February

    Showers of sleet and snow will affect the area, bringing local accumulations of a couple of centimetres, mainly on hills, as well as a risk of icy patches. The public should be aware of locally tricky driving conditions.

    Snow showers will continue to affect many eastern and northeastern parts of the UK through Wednesday. The focus of showers is likely to transfer from eastern Scotland to parts of eastern and southeastern England, as well as some central areas of England, through the day. Some heavy snow showers are possible. Local accumulations of 1-3 cm are likely away from immediate coasts, with locally more than this over higher ground such as the North York Moors and Lincolnshire Wolds.

    The public should be aware for the potential of disruption to travel.
