UK snow map: Hundreds of flood warnings in place as snow melts across UK

Snow fell heavy in places across the UK last week and this weekend. The weather, which followed steadily declining temperatures, prompted several warnings from the Met Office. The now melting blanket has resulted in hundreds more from the Environment Agency as it couples with rainfall.

Both the Environment Agency and the Met Office have released weather warnings in light of incoming heavy rain.

While the Met Office has several scheduled for the incoming week, the rain has already prompted severe conditions.

As such, the Environment Agency has fielded hundreds of combined warnings for areas across the country.

Flood alerts and warnings have urged people to take caution and action in the face of rising floodwater.

The warning lasts from 6pm on Monday, January 18 to the same time on Wednesday, January 20 and predicts up to 30 to 60mm (one to two inches) of rain to fall “widely”.
