SNOW!

26th February 2018
News

The Met Office have issued several weather warnings of snow this week.

We might have thought we'd seen the back of the white stuff for this Winter, but we could have the worst of it over the next couple of days.

As I'm writing a Woodhouse Road has already gained a light covering.

There's a warning in place up until 10:30 this morning. Then at 2 this afternoon it is supposed to be starting up again.

The Met Office say, "snow showers, already affecting eastern parts of England early on Monday, are expected to become more persistent and more widespread through Monday afternoon and evening. There is the potential for travel delays on roads, stranding of some 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." 

This yellow warning is in place until five minutes to midinight.

The comes the Amber warning, which is a more serious one with heavier snow expected.

From 4 in the morning(Tuesday) until 11:00, The Met Office have written, "Snow showers or longer periods of snow are expected on Tuesday, accompanied by very low temperatures. The heaviest, most persistent snow looks likely to cross the area during the morning. There is the likelihood of 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."

That isn't the end of it though as on Wednesday another yellow warning is in place and heavy snow showers are expected across the East Midlands.

Take extra caution when driving during this week.
