    Weather Alert

    Category: Level 2 Warning

    Weather type: Snow and ice

    Affecting: England, Wales and Scotland

    Time and Date Valid For: 18.00 Saturday 19th February - next update.

    Time Of Issue: 13.00 Saturday 19th February 2005.

    A change to colder conditions has already taken place with some places having already seen snow; the outlook is for the weather to turn progressively more snowy towards the middle of next week.

    During Saturday, northerly winds will bring some wintry showers to north and east Scotland, later penetrating to north-east England and East Anglia. The following night may see 2 to 5 cm accumulating in eastern Scotland and north east England, particularly in areas just inland from the coast. There will also be icy stretches on untreated roads, particularly to the east of high ground.

    By Sunday, most of the showers will become focused onto eastern areas with the north/northeasterly winds beginning to blow the showers inland. Many of the showers will become increasingly wintry with snow becoming likely, these showers will penetrate into south-east England during the latter part of the day.

    On Sunday night, inland parts of eastern Scotland, north-east England and East Anglia may see 2 to 5 cm accumulate generally to low levels with 10cm over high ground in north-east England, although the risk is somewhat lower to the west of high ground and on eastern coasts which will be warmed by the sea.

    Into next week, the wind will veer easterly with snow showers in the east and further accumulations at times in inland parts of eastern Britain, typically 2 to 5cm. Indications are that the wintry weather will intensify towards midweek with larger accumulations in the east, and accumulations also widely penetrating to the west of high ground. In the meantime, conditions will continue to be icy at times on untreated roads, particularly to the east of high ground.

    Please stay tuned for further updates to this alert as we get nearer the time.
