The Met Office have issued a yellow weather warning; we should be aware of snow and ice for Nottinghamshire over the weekend.
The warning placed over the county is to start from midnight Saturday 17th until Sunday 11.55pm
Despite most of the Nottinghamshire county already experiencing cloud and light rain today, more is yet to come.
Dangerously, that band of rain is moving northeasterly, prolonging the showers overnight across Nottingham and other regions in the East Midlands. Dropping Friday nights temperatures to a minimum of 9°C.
Over the weekend, the strong gust of easterly winds will lead to some drifts of snow. With temperatures struggling to get much above zero during the day time. The chief forecaster’s assessment for Saturday said: “A band of snow will move slowly south through Saturday morning with accumulations of 1-3cm quite widely.”
“With it becoming significantly colder over the weekend, lying snow left untreated will turn to ice.”
Expect potential power cuts travel delays on roads and some rural communities may be cut off.
