Snow warning issued for Thursday

The Met Office has issued a yellow alert for snow on Thursday this week.

The forecasting giant said that heavy rain forecast for the Thames Valley may turn to snow.

The Chief Forecaster said: “If the area of heavy rain moves further north, this would pull cold air into the system and bring snow to parts of southern England and south Wales. At the same time heavy rain will likely persist in some areas along with the potential for some locally strong winds.”

At the moment, the forecast is touch and go for the white stuff but if it does happen then the Met Office said: “There is a small chance of snow settling with disruption to road, rail and air services as well as interruptions to power supplies and other utilities.

“Associated heavy rain and strong winds may prove additional hazards.”

If snow is to fall it is most likely for 6pm – around rush hour.
