Yellow warning for ice across Nottinghamshire

The Met Office has issued another weather warning, this one is for ice from this evening.

The warning is in place from 5 pm on Sunday 3 December until 12 noon on Monday 4 December.

The warning states:

Modest thaw of recent snowfall will lead to wet roads and pavements.

With temperatures falling this evening refreezing of thawed snow will lead to some icy patches on untreated surfaces.

As well as this, later in the night rain will push north across much of the the area, initially falling on to frozen surfaces.

Some snow is also likely, mainly across the hills and mountains of north Wales and The Peak District.

Snow may fall to lower levels for a time tomorrow morning, especially across parts of Wales adding to the risk of ice.

What should I do?

Keep yourself and your family safe when it is icy. Plan to leave the house at least five minutes earlier than normal. Not needing to rush, reduces your risk of accidents, slips, and falls. If you need to make a journey on foot or by bike, try to use pavements along main roads which are likely to be less slippery. Give yourself the best chance of avoiding delays by checking road conditions if driving, or bus and train timetables, amending your travel plans if necessary. Be prepared for weather warnings to change: when a weather warning is issued, the Met Office recommends staying up to date with the weather forecast in your area.
