Met Office issues weather warning for ice in the Vale

Evesham Editorial 27th Feb, 2017   0

THE MET Office has issued a yellow weather warning for ice as temperatures are set to drop in the Vale.

Forecasters have said ice is expected to form during Monday evening and overnight which could lead to difficult driving conditions on untreated roads, and slippery conditions on pavements.

Temperatures could dip to as low as 2 degrees tonight.

The warning will take effect from 4pm this afternoon until 10am Tuesday morning.

The Met Office’s chief forecaster said: “Showers will affect many parts of the UK during Monday, with some continuing overnight and into Tuesday morning, when temperatures will also fall below zero in some areas, bringing a risk of ice.

“The showers will fall as rain, sleet and hail, but as snow over hills, where several centimetres of snow may accumulate, and locally to lower levels where heavier showers occur.”
