Yellow warning issued by Met Office
5:50pm Monday 27th January 2014 in Local
A YELLOW warning for ice in Herefordshire and Worcestershire has been issued by the Met Office.
The warning covers the whole of the Midlands.
Showers of rain, sleet and snow and clear skies between showers are expected to allow temperatures to fall to around freezing resulting in a risk of icy stretches forming on untreated surfaces.
People should be aware of the potential for some disruption to travel.
The Met Office's chief forecaster said: "A colder, westerly air stream will follow Sunday's frontal band bringing heavy wintry showers and wet surfaces to many areas during Sunday evening and night.
"Clear skies between showers are expected to allow temperatures to fall to or just below freezing at times resulting in a risk of icy stretches forming on untreated surfaces.
"Some areas of the United Kingdom will also see a covering of snow. Snow amounts will generally be small, mostly accumulating on vegetation, however more persistent and heavy show is expected over the higher ground of western and central Highland and the southern Grampians."
