Met Office issues new ice warning for Cornwall

Published by the Pirate FM News Team at 11:01am 22nd January 2019.

The Met Office has issued another ice warning for Cornwall, as freak hail storms hit the A30.

The yellow alert will affect areas north of Bodmin, including a stretch of the A30 and A38.

It will be in force from 4pm on Tuesday and across Wednesday morning's drive to work.

What can we expect?

  • Some injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces
  • Ice on some roads, pavements and cycle paths

"Ice will form in places later on Tuesday afternoon and overnight into Wednesday, especially where wintry showers leave surfaces wet.

"Further hail, sleet and snow showers are also likely at times.

"Accumulations of several centimetres are likely above 200 metres, mainly across western Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and north-west England.

"A small amount of settling snow (1cm or less) is also possible at lower levels in a few places".
