Met Office issue Ice warning for the Isle of Wight

Watch out for icy conditions on the roads tomorrow and be prepared for disruption to travel


It doesn’t seem as though we’ll have much more (if any) snow for the moment, but the Met Office have issued a yellow (be alert) warning for Ice tomorrow (valid from 0005 to 2359 on Monday 21st January 2013).

They say, “Sub-zero overnight temperatures will lead to ice forming where snow has fallen or melted during Sunday. In addition there is the risk of further localised snowfalls of some 1-3 cm in places during Monday with a low risk of as much as 5 cm. The public should be aware of the risk of disruption to travel during this continuing spell of wintry weather.”
