Met Office issue fresh warnings of Snow, Ice and Heavy rain!

Storm Dennis may be clearing the UK but the bad weather shows no signs of letting up.

Four new warnings have been issued, Firstly Snow & Ice covering the next 48 hours in parts of Scotland. With the details from the Met Office stating:

‘Frequent showers will turn increasingly wintry through Monday evening, allowing snow to settle on some higher routes. 1-2 cm is likely above around 200 m, with 3-5 cm possible above 400 m. Showers will be accompanied by strong westerly winds which may lead to some drifting. Ice may also form on untreated surfaces.’

The next warning issued is for Wednesday and Thursday and covers Wales as further heavy rain is expected. The warning says:

‘An Atlantic weather system arriving on Wednesday is expected to bring a further spell of rainfall which is likely to become particularly prolonged over areas of high ground. Whilst there is more uncertainty over the rainfall totals for south Wales, there is a small chance that 50-60 mm could fall here in 24 hours. There is higher confidence in the rainfall for north-west Wales, with between 70 and 100 mm of rain most likely. Given already saturated ground, in south Wales in particular, there is a small chance of further flooding during this event.’
