Met Office issues snow and ice warning around Watford and London

More snow could be on the way in South West Hertfordshire and London as the Met Office issued a weather warning.

The weather forecaster has issued a yellow warning for snow and ice on Sunday and is in place from 8am until 11.59pm.

It said that “an area of rain and snow will linger over southeast England Sunday leading to some icy stretches and some travel disruption”.

It said people should expect:

  • Some roads and railways likely to be affected with longer journey times by road, bus and train services
  • Some injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces
  • Probably some icy patches on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths

The Met Office said on its website: “An area of rain, sleet and snow will move into southeast England from the west on Sunday morning, lingering here for much of the day before gradually clearing Sunday night.

“1-3 cm of snow is possible in places, mainly above 100 m, with icy stretches forming as this arrives – some persisting during the day or reforming as the precipitation clears during the evening.”

Another warning for just snow has also been issued for other areas of Hertfordshire, including St Albans, which is in place from 3am to 9pm on Sunday.
