    Weather Alert

    Category: Level 3

    Weather type: Heavy Rain turning to Sleet or Snow, and Ice

    Affecting: All of the UK

    Time and Date Valid For: 21:00 Tuesday 01st March - 18:00 Wednesday 02nd March 2005.

    Time Of Issue: 18.10 Tuesday 01st March 2005.

    This is an update to Net-Weather Alert 00074 issued yesterday (Monday) evening.

    Low pressure is currently tracking southeastwards across England, and is forecast to lie close to southeast England by midday tomorrow (Wednesday), with a cold northeasterly wind developing across much of the country behind this system.

    Outbreaks of rain across southern and southeastern England will continue into the night, and are expected to become more widespread over these areas, along with the Midlands and East Anglia as the night goes on.

    Cold north/northeasterly winds are setting in behind this rain band, and as these undercut the system later tonight and during tomorrow, there is an increasing risk of the rain turning to sleet and snow.

    Snow is increasingly likely in inland areas and over the hills (above 150m). However, there is always the risk of snow falling to low levels, bring the risk of possible distruption if it settles. This is a very borderline situation, but at the moment significant accumulations are not expected. Please stay tuned to Net-Weather though as this could quite easily change.

    During tomorrow, the rain, sleet and snow will gradually edge away southeastwards. Sleet and snow showers will follow to northern and eastern parts of Scotland and Northeast England.

    During this period, sleet and snow showers over northern and eastern Scotland will be heavy at times, giving moderate accumulations in places, especially over the hills.

    By tomorrow night, a widespread sharp frost is expected to develop, bringing the hazard of widespread icy stretches. Further snow showers will continue in the east, with accumulations possible.

    Please stay tuned to Net-Weather for any possible Flash Alerts that may be issued if necessary. The next scheduled update will be tomorrow evening.

    Confidence Level: 70%
