Met Office predicts wintry conditions – snow and ice for North Staffordshire

According to the Met Office we are going to see a return to colder weather and this will bring snow. The majority of the snow will fall across northern England and Scotland.

Northern areas such as Newcastle, parts of Manchester, Leeds, York, Sheffield, Middlesbrough and Lancaster are included in the snow and also have flooding warnings.

According to the Met Office, the snow could spread further towards the Midlands on Monday. A yellow warning for rain and snow is in place until 3pm on Tuesday, this stretches right down to Stoke-on-Trent.

The warning states the snow and rain could lead to flooding on the already-saturated ground, and increase the risk of travel disruption.

Dan Suri is a chief forecaster at the Met Office. He said: “This low-pressure system will bring a lot of moisture into contact with the relatively cold air across the northern half of the UK. This brings wintry conditions to an extending from East Yorkshire to North Lancashire across into Northern Ireland and northwards Scotland. For some, snowfall could coincide with the Monday rush hour, bringing additional complications.”

The weather website WXCharts also predicts snow on the outskirts of North Staffordshire, and at times this snow will move further towards us.
