Met Office Forecast Predicts More Snow For Parts Of The UK
Heavy snow is forecast to hit London and the South East of England next week. The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for the area that extends from Tuesday until Wednesday evening.
The yellow warning means 'be aware' and also covers the West and East Midlands, the East of England and South West England.
The warning is because of 'snow, possibly heavy at times', which is reportedly likely to develop overnight on Tuesday, going into Wednesday.
The Met Office said: "A band of rain pushing east across parts of England is likely to turn to snow during Tuesday evening, with snow continuing into Wednesday.
"Accumulations of 1-3 cm are likely quite widely, with accumulations of 5cm in places. There is a small chance that some areas could see up to 10cm, more especially over the higher ground."
The statement continued: "There is a small chance of travel delays on roads with some stranded vehicles and passengers, along with delayed or cancelled rail and air travel.
"There is a slight chance that some rural communities could become cut off.
"There is a small chance that power cuts will occur and other services, such as mobile phone coverage, may be affected."
As it happens, that's not the only warning knocking around the UK at the minute. This Sunday sees a yellow warning in place for wind and ice, for many parts of the UK. This is a result of the current trend in the weather coming down from the north.
The prevailing weather front across most of the United Kingdom at the minute is from the Arctic, bringing some snow, sleet and icy winds at some speed. It's the coldest it has been across Britain this winter, for sure.
Today is forecast to be much colder than yesterday was. Met Office weather forecaster Luke Miall said: "We will see quite a blast of strong, northerly winds coming down from the Arctic.
"It's going to be very windy but it's also going to turn much colder.
"That northerly wind is just going to cut straight through, so its real temperature on the thermometer will probably say 4-7C, but when you add on the wind it's going to feel sub-zero."
Oh, great. More freezing weather.
On the upside, it might not actually materialise at all. The conditions for snow are so volatile that they can't be as accurately predicted as other types of weather.
Still, better to stay inside with a hot chocolate, just to be sure.
