Met Office warn of ICE after snow causes traffic chaos on Wirral


The Met Office had warned the region of snow showers on Thursday and right on cue snow fell in some areas of Wirral.

Warnings were in place through Thursday and into Friday, temperatures struggled to reach above 3C all day.

As the sleety snow fell roads turned slippery and slushy which caused traffic problems across the area.

The M53 was gridlocked for a few hours and a car had spun off the road and into railings in Wallasey.

Warnings of ICE are in place through Friday as untreated Road surfaces could freeze over in the cold weather overnight.

The Met Office say: “Following the eastward clearance of Thursday’s rain, sleet and snow across southern Britain, falling temperatures will lead to ice forming rapidly on untreated surfaces here.

“A further weather system running southwards may briefly bring some sleet or snow to northern and eastern parts of the warning area.”
