Early warnings of severe or extreme weather

These are issued when the Met Office has 60% or greater confidence that severe weather is expected in the next few days.

North East England:

    Warning    Valid from    Valid to
   Heavy Snow    1800 Sun 10    1200 Mon 11

Risk of disruption

60%   Darlington
60%   Durham
60%   Hartlepool
60%   Middlesbrough
60%   Northumberland
60%   Redcar + Cleveland
60%   Stockton-on-Tees
60%   Tyne + Wear


There is a high risk of severe weather affecting parts of northern England, the Midlands and eastern Wales. Outbreaks of snow developing on Sunday will become heavier and more persistent during late afternoon or evening and persistent through the night and into Monday morning. 5 to 15cm of fresh level snow is expected widely with 20-30cm locally. Drifting in the very strong winds will cause even greater accumulations in places. Disruption to transport networks and icing on power lines is possible.

It is expected that this Early Warning will be superseded by Flash messages.

Issued at: 1211 Sat 9 Jan
