THE Met Office has issued a yellow warning for overnight snow and ice across the whole of Worcestershire.

It comes into effect tomorrow (Monday, December 28) with a band of weather, which has caused similar warnings to be issued today for Scotland, North Wales and the north west of England, set to move south easterly.

The Met Office said: “An area of rain is likely to move south through Sunday night and Monday across parts of England and Wales. There is the potential for this to turn to snow for a time.

“There is a lot of uncertainty in where snow develops with some areas seeing little or no accumulations.

“However, there is a very low likelihood of 1-3 cm, and locally 5-10 cm falling in a few places, particularly over higher ground of Wales above 200 metres.

“As well as snow, widespread ice may also be an issue, especially where treatment has been washed off road surfaces.”

The main concern is over ice with the Met Office warning that “some roads and railways are likely to be affected with longer journey times by road, bus and train” as well as the potential for “injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces”, particularly on untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths.
