Wirral issued three days of snow and ice warnings


The Met Office has placed Wirral on three days of severe weather warnings for snow and ice.

The wintry weather is expected through Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

Temperatures on Tuesday morning are expected to be around just 2C and so any rain that is forecast could turn to snow.

The Met Office warn that there could be possible travel delays or cancellations to air travel, some rural communities could become cut off, power cuts may occur, chance of injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces and untreated pavements and cycle paths might be impassable.


A forecaster at the Met Office said: “A band of rain, locally heavy in places, is likely to push slowly northeast across Wales and England late Monday.

“As this rain comes into contact with cold air in place, it is likely to readily turn to snow across parts of Wales, the Midlands, and later parts of northern England.

“1-4 cm of snow is quite likely away from coasts, with 5-10 cm possible above about 150 metres. As well as snow, a period of freezing rain is possible for parts of east Wales and the West and South Midlands.

“Snow should turn back to rain from the south, lasting longest across parts of northern England.”
