Snow warning issued for Cumbria

The Met Office is warning that showers or longer periods of snow will affect parts of the UK during Tuesday.

There is the potential for 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.

A spokesman for the Met Office said: “There is a lot of uncertainty in the extent and timing of snow during Tuesday.

“Showers will bring a large variation in amounts of snow across even small areas with some places seeing very little.

“The most likely time for a period of more widespread snow currently looks to be during Tuesday morning.

“There is the potential for locally 5-10 cm of snow across eastern parts however where showers become more organised there may be more widespread snow cover.”
