An area of snow is likely to move eastwards across many central and northern parts of the UK on Sunday. The snow is more likely to affect higher routes with lower levels only affected more locally. In addition, rain may fall onto frozen surfaces for a time, particularly across Scotland, following a very cold night.
Some roads and railways likely to be affected, with longer journey times by road, bus and train services.
Some injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces.
Probably some icy patches on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths.
The snow is expected to become confined to northeast Scotland later in the day as it progressively turns to rain from the southwest.
This warning area has been extended to cover much of the Midlands and parts of eastern England and some northern parts of Wales.Amounts of fresh snow will vary considerably across the warning area. Most of the snow is expected on higher ground with 3-6 cm likely above around 200 m and perhaps 10-15 cm locally on ground above 300 m over Scotland. At lower levels 1-3 cm is possible locally, but with many spots escaping altogether. There is significant uncertainty regarding the southern limit of any snow accumulations.The public is advised to take extra care, further information and advice can be found here: http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/warnings/
