The Met Office have issued four weather warnings for Nottinghamshire with the heaviest snow this week expected to fall on Tuesday (February 27).

The weather forecaster has said snow showers or longer periods of snow are expected on Tuesday, accompanied by very low temperatures from 4am until 11am tomorrow in an amber weather warning.

The heaviest, most persistent snow looks likely to cross the area during the morning.

There is the likelihood of travel delays on roads with some stranded vehicles and passengers, as well as delays or cancellations to rail and air travel.

Some rural communities could become cut off.

Power cuts may also occur and other services such as mobile phones may be affected.

The chief forecaster’s assessment said: “Further snow showers are expected through Tuesday, with the likelihood a more area of snow will push southwest during the morning, bringing 5-10cm of snow in places in just a few hours.

“Strong winds may lead to drifting of lying snow (and severe wind chill) especially over hills, with lighning perhaps an additional hazard near North Sea coasts.”

Three other warnings, all graded yellow, have been issued which run from 4pm until 11.55pm today (Monday February 26), from 12.05am until 11.55pm tomorrow and for the same time on Wednesday (February 28).

The Met Office have said snow showers are expecting to become more persistent and heavier through the afternoon and evening today.

Snow showers or longer periods of snow are expected tomorrow accompanied by very low temperatures.

Heavy snow showers are then expected into Wednesday.
