Snow: Severe weather warnings in place across UK


Posted: Sun, Jan 24, 2021, 14:49

Severe weather warnings for snow are in place across much of the UK amid fears of travel disruption.

Snow has been falling across many areas, with four vaccination centres closed in Wales due to safety concerns.

The Met Office has yellow weather warnings for snow, with drivers being urged to take care on icy roads.

By mid-morning on Sunday large parts of the UK were experiencing snow or sleet. The snowy showers are due to die out later for most.

Highways England warned that the snow had caused collisions on the M3, M27 and M25 in southern England, with the agency urging drivers to only travel if absolutely necessary.

Those using the roads for essential journeys are urged to allow plenty of extra time for their travel and pedestrians and cyclists are also advised to be cautious.

The Met Office put a yellow weather warning in place stretching from coast to coast in southern England and ending just below Manchester.

It is also in place for all of Wales other than Anglesey, most of Northern Ireland and western and northern areas of Scotland.

The hashtag "Narnia" was trending on Twitter in the UK on Sunday morning as people rushed to share their pictures of snow on social media.

In Wales, appointments at the Bridgend, Rhondda, Abercynon and Merthyr Tydfil vaccination centres for Sunday will be rescheduled for safety reasons, the Cwm Taf Morgannwg health board said.

Up to 3cm of snow is forecast to fall in most areas of Wales, with 10 to 15cm expected in the Brecon Beacons and Snowdonia.

A vaccination centre in Lichfield, Staffordshire, also had to close for the day, local MP Michael Fabricant said.

People have been working to clear snow outside vaccine centres in other parts of the country.

Met Office forecaster Simon Partridge said the Midlands was likely to see the most snow. Coleshill, near Birmingham, has already had 9cm (3.5 inches) on Sunday.

Mr Partridge said a band of hail, sleet, snow and rain moved in through Wales and south-west England in the early hours before sweeping across the UK. It was then stalling over the Midlands, explaining why the area was seeing the most snow.

Through the rest of the day and overnight it will move its way through the South East but will ease away.

Sunday evening could see colder temperatures, with it dropping to -4C to -6C (25F to 21F) for a lot of the south of the UK, he said.

"Some localised spots, likely in the Midlands, could see it as low as -10C (14F)," he added.

Chris Fawkes of BBC Weather said some stretches of the M4 and M5 had been completely covered in snow at some points this morning.

That is partly due to the fact roads are being used less, due to the pandemic, as traffic is needed to mix grit in with the snow on roads.
