Risk of snow: Weather warning issued for Yorkshire and the Humber

Heavy Snow UK

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for the risk of snow in the Yorkshire and Humber region.

Forecasters are warning the public to “be aware” of the potential disruption of snow on Boxing Day tomorrow and the day after.

Where snow does occur, there are expected accumulations of 2cm to 4cm and in excess of 10cm possible.

The Met Office said: “An area of rain, sleet and snow is expected to spread eastwards across parts of Northern Ireland, England and Wales during Boxing Day before clearing during the evening and overnight.

“A lot of uncertainty surrounds how much snow will occur, but there is the risk of several centimetres even at low levels. As precipitation clears, roads could turn very icy.”

Areas given the yellow warning include the East Riding of Yorkshire, Kingston upon Hull, North East Lincolnshire, North Lincolnshire, North Yorkshire, South Yorkshire, West Yorkshire, and York.
