Warning Of Snow For North Staffordshire Area

Further sleet and snow is expected at times through Saturday night, becoming heavier during Sunday morning, particularly over the southern Pennines. Some temporary slushy accumulations are possible down to 150 metres early on Sunday, with 2-5 cm likely above 250 metres and possibly 10-15 cm above 350 metres. The snow will drift in the strengthening winds. Some transport routes and travel services may be affected.

Outbreaks of sleet and snow will continue during Saturday, but generally becoming confined to higher ground through the afternoon, with only a low risk of disruption. However, during Sunday, an area of more widespread and at times heavy snow (rain or sleet at lower levels) is expected to develop along the Pennine chain, with drifting of snow in the strong northeasterly winds.
