A yellow weather warning of snow has been issued by the Met Office for Nottinghamshire for Easter Monday.

The warning lasts from 12.15am until 11.45pm on April 2 with the possibility of heavy snow covering the county.

There is a small chance of travel delays on roads with some stranded vehicles and passengers along with delayed or cancelled rail and air travel.

There is a slight chance some rural communities could become cut off.

There is a small chance power cuts will occur and other services, such as mobile phone coverage, may be affected.

The chief forecaster’s assessment said: “As a weather system moves in from the south and comes up against cold air over the UK, there is a chance rain could turn to heavy snow in places.

“Several centimetres of snow are possible, especially over hills, with drifting in strong winds.

“There is also the possibility of a few centimetres of wet snow gathering at lower levels.

“At present, the extent and amounts of any snow are very uncertain and it is quite possible snow might not be too disruptive.”
