Spring to get off to a ICY start on Merseyside as more severe weather warnings issued


Merseyside saw snow showers over the weekend as freezing temperatures returned from the east.

Temperatures on Merseyside struggled to get higher than 2C on Sunday and with winds gusting at around 40mph, the weather felt closer to -7C at times.

Although conditions will warm up slightly through Monday, temperatures will drop under clear skies overnight.

The cold weather overnight means a risk of ICE, so the Met Office has placed the region on a Yellow severe weather warning for ICE until 9am on Tuesday.

The Met Office say: “A cold and mainly dry with isolated wintry showers clearing away this evening to leave mostly clear skies by dawn.

“A risk of icy stretches. Mainly light winds”.

The warnings for snow and ICE come just as the UK heads into spring which starts on Tuesday 20th March.

The weather is set to feel more like spring through the week as milder weather returns.

By the end of the week Merseyside could see temperatures back into double figures.

The Met Office say: “Wednesday, a locally frosty start, then dry, but rain may move in from north later.

“Thursday and Friday will be milder but more unsettled with spells of wind and rain”.
