Met Office issues Cheshire weather warning for snow and ice

A weather warning for snow and ice will come into force across Cheshire later today (March 13).

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning which will be in place from 5pm until 10am tomorrow.

The warning covers the whole of Cheshire and comes after snow battered parts of the county last week.

The warning states: “Rain, sleet and snow followed by ice likely to cause some impacts to travel.”

Daniel Rudman. a Met Office deputy chief forecaster, said: “There is an increasingly strong signal for colder air to once again feed into the north of the UK during Monday.

“This flow is likely to extend southwards with much of the UK likely to be under the influence of colder conditions overnight into Tuesday.

“Tuesday is set to remain a cold day, but it is not expected to be as cold as conditions have been this week, and there will be brighter periods for most. There are likely to be some showers too, although any snow fall is expected be over higher elevations.”

Further out, a weather system is forecast to bring milder conditions in from the west. This system will bring further rain, especially to areas of higher ground in the west of the UK, although still with the risk of another period of snow for the north.
