VIDEO - New weather warning for rain, snow and ice

Met Office issues more weather warnings

    • Weather warnings are still in place - for snow and ice - across Harrogate, Craven and Wharfedale this morning (Thursday, 27 February).
    • The alerts in place until 10 o'clock.
    • However, as yet, we've not had any snow which caused chaos during Monday's commute.
    • But forecasters are warning of heavy rain in Craven and parts of Wharfedale for tomorrow and into Saturday morning.

Wintry conditions remain in the forecast, with snow and ice warnings today (Thursday, 27 February).

Forecasters predict more of the white stuff up until 10 o'clock this morning.

There is also a YELLOW warning for rain parts of Craven and Wharfedale on Friday and Saturday too, 

Paul Gundersen, Chief Meteorologist with the Met Office, said:

“The flow of cold air over the UK will lead to heavy, wintry showers and icy conditions overnight.

Up until 10am on Thursday there is a Met Office Yellow warning for snow & ice for most of the UK north of a line from the central Wales to the Wash, except north-east England and eastern Scotland.

A low-pressure system moving in to the South West from the Atlantic overnight will bring a further period of rain to southern England.

As this system encounters the cold air further north over the UK, there is a risk of snow.

Rain, sleet and snow will quickly clear eastwards by late morning and any snow at lower levels will soon thaw.

On Friday and Saturday the forecast remains distinctly unsettled with Yellow rain warnings in force for most of Wales and parts of northern England. 

Within these warning areas 40-60mm of rain is possible on the highest ground with 15-30mm likely more widely.

This could bring further flooding impacts to already-affected communities and catchments.”
