What do the weather warnings of the Meteorological Bureau really mean?

There are currently yellow warnings for ice, snow, and fog throughout the UK, and amber warning is active from 2 to 9 pm throughout western England today.

This is what the Meteorological Service says:

Yellow warning

Yellow warnings can be issued for a range of weather situations. Many of them are released when there is a chance that the weather will cause some minor bumps, including some interference with travel in several places. Many people can continue their daily lives, but some of them will be directly affected, so it is important to assess whether it is possible to influence this. Other yellow warnings are issued when the weather can have a much more serious effect on most people, but the reliability of these effects is much lower. It is important to read the contents of the yellow warnings to determine which weather situation is covered by the yellow warning.

Amber warning

There is an increased likelihood of exposure to harsh weather that could potentially disrupt your plans. This means that there is a possibility of delays in transit, the closure of roads and railways, a power outage and the potential risk to life and property. You should think about changing your plans and taking measures to protect yourself and your property. You may want to think about the impact of weather on your family and your community, and also on whether you need to do something in anticipation of harsh weather in order to minimize impact.

Red Warning

Dangerous weather is expected, and if you have not already done so, you should take action now to protect yourself and others from the effects of severe weather. It is highly likely that this would be life threatening, with significant travel disruptions, energy supply and, possibly, widespread damage to property and infrastructure. You should avoid traveling where possible and follow the advice of the emergency services and local authorities. ”
