The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for snow and ice in parts of the UK this week.

Parts of the UK are being told to prepare for "hazardous conditions" with the warnings lasting from 5pm today (Tuesday, November 28) to 11am on Thursday, November 30.

Parts of Scotland and the North East of England will be the areas affected by these warnings.

The Met Office said: "Wintry showers will lead to ice forming on untreated surfaces during Tuesday evening and overnight into Wednesday morning.




"Snow will begin to accumulate, especially away from windward coasts, with 1-3cm possible. Higher routes of north-east Scotland may see up to 5cm of snow accumulate."

Here's a map showing where the snow will impact the UK in the next few days.

What to expect with snow and ice weather warning

In terms of what to expect with the snow and ice weather warning the Met Office said:

  • Some roads and railways likely to be affected with longer journey times by road, bus and train services

  • Probably some icy patches on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths

In a statement, they added: "Showers, falling as snow inland, will lead to icy patches and hazardous conditions."
