    Level 2 cold weather alert issued for all of England

    Current alert level: Level 2 - Alert and Readiness

    Issued at: 08:40 on Fri 25 Jan 2019

    There is a 80% probability of severe cold weather, icy conditions and some snow showers between 0900 on Sunday 27 Jan and 1800 on Wednesday 30 Jan in parts of England. This weather could increase the health risks to vulnerable patients and disrupt the delivery of services. Please refer to the national Cold Weather Plan and your Trust's emergency plan for appropriate preventive action.

    A brief milder interlude is expected on Friday, lasting into Saturday. Later Saturday, blustery rain should move eastwards across the UK, continuing into early Sunday, which will reintroduce cold air. This will likely be followed by some wintry showers, perhaps most frequent on the North Sea coast for a time, although there is low confidence in this aspect. Snow is possible across hills, especially in the north, with some more sporadic falls to lower levels here as well. The cold feel will be accentuated by a brisk northerly wind to start the new working week, although this does mean that overnight minimum temperatures will not fall quite as far. Icy stretches are possible by this time, especially overnight. Confidence regarding the extent and location of any wintry precipitation remains low beyond Monday, however cold conditions are currently expected to persist for much of the country.

    There is then the potential for some slightly less cold air to make some progress northeastwards from the southwest through the middle of next week, but this remains very uncertain at this stage.

    This alert is very likely to be superseded by a fresh cold weather alert with further details on Monday 28 January, once details for the coming week are more certain.

    An update will be issued when the alert level changes in any region. Alerts are issued once a day by 0900 if required and are not subject to amendment in between standard issue times. Note that the details of the forecast weather are valid at the time of issue but may change over the period that an alert remains in force. These details will not be updated here unless the alert level also changes, the latest forecast details can be obtained at the following link: http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/forecast/#?tab=map

    Perhaps we should ban all model charts beyond T+120 hours. We could then go back to the 70-80's and actually watch weather forecasts from professionals. Probably not believing them anyway and happy to

    Unusually for me, I'm not even longing for snow and I LOVE snow. Just want heat and the sun back. Maybe I'm still traumatised from being a hermit for a week during Beast from the East!

    And to say we can`t get a cold spells from the atlantic these days,seems to have made a comeback in recent years.

    Looking another poor weak for me. Best chance of any snow Sunday and that is really pushing it. So expecting a Snow free week and a wet end to it. The only white stuff being frost more likely than not. So the naff winter is continuing. At least the grass has stopped growing. ?

    It explains why at the bottom of the page

    "A Cold weather health watch system operates in England from the 1 November to 31 March every year, in association with Public Health England."

    It's the same as heatwave alerts in summer

    Firstly you haven't been proven right about anything yet, although you still could be, but best to wait until winter is actually over lol.

    Also, 2018 summer was great, I would definitely want a repeat of that, longest settled warm period for a long time!

    the dreaded M4 corridor is getting mentioned again

    Think i may head there one day, it'll be interesting to see rain fall south, and snow falling to the north, i presume it'll be sleet on the M4 itself ;)

    to the moaning thread i go.

    look at the shambles going on, regarding the details on next week

    then i think back to last summer, with the scare stories spread around in mainstream media, regarding climate change,

    and what it'll be like in the year 2070

    they are dithering about the next couple of days... let's forget about 2070, shall we? good grief !!

    these types of weather situations, the forecasters are about use as a chocolate fireguard

    waiting for a weather system to arrive, to see what falls from the sky... nowcasting, and covering their arses with

    rain, sleet or snow.

    so we're back to the days, of looking out the window to see what it's doing

    Warning out yesterday for one CM of snow ???

    What is it with this UK and snow and so much fuss made about tiny amounts and its not even that cold. 

    What sort of warning would they put out if we ever got the sort of cold USA are getting this week
