Yellow warnings are issued when it is likely that the weather will cause some low level impacts, including some disruption to travel in a few places.

While many people may not be disrupted, there will be some who will be directly impacted.

Other yellow warnings are issued when the weather could bring much more severe impacts to the majority of people but the certainty of those impacts occurring is much lower.
