Snow and Ice to hit Cumbria after storm CIARA
The Met Office has issued a Yellow warning of snow and ice from 15:00 tomorrow until Wednesday.
Showers will turn increasingly to snow later on Monday, becoming frequent and heavy at times and lasting through Tuesday. The snow showers will occur particularly over high ground giving locally 1-3 cm above around 150 metres and 3-8 cm above 300 metres. Snow will gradually build, perhaps leading to accumulation of 10-15 cm on the highest routes. Any snow accumulations over low ground are likely to be temporary. Icy surfaces are likely to cause problems, especially overnight. Strong winds will be an additional hazard with gusts of 50-60 mph at times leading to drifting of snow over high ground.
