Here’s what to expect while the warning is in place:

  • Some delays to road, rail, air and ferry transport are likely
  • There is a slight chance of some damage to buildings, such as tiles blown from roofs
  • There is a small chance that some roads and bridges could close
  • There is a slight chance that power cuts may occur, with the potential to affect other services, such as mobile phone coverage

The news comes after dates were set for snow and ice to hit the region as colder spells are becoming more likely.

Looking at the Met Office long-range forecast between Thursday December 7 and Tuesday December 21, they have warned that there is a “risk of snow and ice in the North East.”

However, WXCharts have predicted snow as early as this weekend starting on November 28.

The weather-forecaster has predicted up to 5cm of snow between Sunday November 28 and Monday November 30.

More snow is predicted by the forecaster for early next month as well with much of the North-East and North Yorkshire being covered.

The full Met Office forecast between December 7 and December 21 reads: “A generally northwesterly airflow looks set to continue for much of this period, with the most changeable conditions likely to be in the north of the UK.

“Spells of rain and possibly strong winds are likely across the north, these interspersed with showers and periods of more settled weather.

“In the south high pressure is likely to remain close by, giving a good deal of settled and dry weather.

“Temperatures will be varied overall with longer mild spells being punctuated by shorter colder spells, with some wintry weather also possible with a risk of snow and ice in the north. During any clear, calm spells, overnight frost and fog are likely.”
