Ice warning for Cumbria
Published at 13:23, Sunday, 12 January 2014
The Met Office is warning that ice could disrupt transport in Cumbria on Monday as overnight rain is followed by a freeze in the early hours.
Forecasters have issued a “yellow” weather warning for parts of north Cumbria, Northumberland and much of Scotland, in force from 1am to 10am on Monday.
They say rain and hill snow will clear slowly northeastwards during the early hours followed by clearing skies, allowing temperatures to fall to near or below freezing.
This will lead to icy stretches forming on untreated surfaces with high-level routes particularly at risk.
A spokesman said: “The public should be aware that this could lead to disruption to transport.”
