The Met Office have today issued a yellow ‘be aware’ weather warning for Yorkshire as wells as much of the UK and Northern Ireland after the storm which hit the country over the weekend continues.

The storm caused significant travel disruption over the weekend across the country and the heavy rain and strong winds are expected to continue throughout Yorkshire today and into tomorrow.

Up to 15cm of snow is expected to fall across high ground in parts of North East and North West England as well as Scotland and Northern Ireland and up to 2.5cm could affect lower areas.

The Met Eirann - the Met Office equivalent in Republic of Ireland - officially anointed the third named storm front of the year Storm Clodagh on Saturday. Storms can be named by either the Met Office or Met Eirann.

A spokesman for the Met Office said: “Rain is expected to turn to wet snow with 2-5cm possible above about 150m, and some slushy accumulations possible at lower levels. 10cm may possibly occur above 300m.

“Please be aware of the need to take extra care and allow more time for travel.”
