    Valid 1800 Sun 1 Feb to 1000 on Mon 2 Feb

    Daytime showers will clear away during the evening. Clear skies will lead to both air and road temperatures quickly falling belowing freezing. Ice is likely to form on untreated roads and pavements.

    YELLOW WARNING of ICE for eastern England Issued 1038 Sun 1 Feb 2015

    Valid from 1200 Mon 2 Feb to 1000 Tue 3 Feb.

    Showers of sleet and snow will affect the area, bringing local accumulations of a couple of centimetres, mainly on hills, as well as a risk of icy patches. The public should be aware of locally tricky driving conditions.

    YELLOW EARLY WARNING of SNOW for Scotland and Northern Ireland

    Issued 1007 Sun 1 Feb 2015

    Valid from: 1600 on Mon 2 Feb to 1200 Tue 03 Feb.

    An area of persistent sleet and snow reaching Northwest Scotland and the Northern Isles by late Monday afternoon will spread southeastwards on Monday night. 2-5 cm of snow is likely even to low levels and an additional 10 cm of snow is possible over higher ground in Northern Ireland, Northern Scotland, and across Shetland. Clearer weather with more scattered snow showers will follow south on Tuesday morning, and falling temperatures will allow icy stretches to form particularly where snowfall has been wet.

    The public should be aware of the risk of difficult driving conditions and some travel disruption.

    Snow showers will continue to affect many eastern and northeastern parts of the UK through Wednesday. The focus of showers is likely to transfer from eastern Scotland to parts of eastern and southeastern England, as well as some central areas of England, through the day. Some heavy snow showers are possible. Local accumulations of 1-3 cm are likely away from immediate coasts, with locally more than this over higher ground such as the North York Moors and Lincolnshire Wolds.

    The public should be aware for the potential of disruption to travel.
    Flood Warning

    Issued by the Environment Agency or by SEPA in Scotland and Natural Resources Wales in Wales

    Sunday 1 February

    There are no flood warnings in force anywhere in the United Kingdom.
    About the Met Office Weather Warnings

    BBC Weather carries two types of weather warnings issued by the Met Office: Warnings and Early Warnings.

    Warnings will be issued when severe weather is expected within the next 24 hours.

    Early Warnings will be issued more than 24 hours ahead of severe weather.

    There are three categories of event Red, Amber and Yellow – the most severe is Red.

    A Warning and an Early Warning of the same colour have the same severity but are forecast to arrive at different times. Thus, the difference between a Red Warning and a Red Early Warning is the lead time of the event.

    When a warning is in force, full information can be found at Met Office Weather Warnings
    About Flood Warnings

    The flood warnings are issued by the Environment Agency, the Scottish Environment Protection Agency and Natural Resources Wales, and sent to the BBC Weather Centre. We then issue a compendium of warnings based on the latest information available. When severe flood warnings are issued they will also be highlighted on TV broadcasts.
    Find out more about Flood Warnings

    There are a number of ways you find out whether your area is at risk from flooding. The Environment Agency, the Scottish Environment Protection Agency and Natural Resources Wales update their warnings 24 hours a day via the Floodline number.
