Weather Risks

Heavy Rain & Snow

Valid From: Monday 24th Feb – 00.00

Valid to: Monday 24th Feb – 12:00

Although it is a complex and developing situation weather models seem to have good agreement on the snow risk for the early hours of Monday. Both the high resolution Arpege and Icon models show a significant snow risk across the North West.

The timing of this situation will clash with the morning rush hour and as a result significant travel disruptions are likely.

At this moment in time snow to low levels isn’t ruled out. Please see the snow accumulation image below for general guidance of the risk areas.

This is a developing situation and as such further subtle changes are possible. As parts of the North West will lie on the boundary of cold and miler air some areas may not see snow at all. However if this is the case heavy rain will still cause problems regardless and as such the watch covers both these aspects.
