SNOW could be on its way to Herefordshire, where a weather warning has been issued by the Met Office.

The Met Office yellow warning for ice will come into force from 3pm today (January 8) and remain in force until 3am tomorrow (January 9).

Weather warning

The Met Office weather warning said parts of southern Britain are likely to see some snow showers during Monday afternoon and the first part of the night.

Most places will see little or no lying snow, but one to two centimetres may settle in one or two places, mostly over high ground, the Met Office said.

In addition, some icy surfaces are possible for a time. However, the chance of this reduces by dawn on Tuesday as snow showers clear to the west and surfaces dry out.

The ice warning covers Hereford and the south of the county, along with all of southern England.


Weather forecast 

The Met Office said today will be generally dry with broken clouds, sunny spells, and one or two light sleet or snow flurries possible. It will be chilly with a maximum temperature of 4 °C.

An isolated snow flurry is possible this evening but it will be dry with clear periods after. The forecaster said it will feel very cold with a widespread frost developing as temperatures drop to a minimum of -3 °C.

Tuesday will be fine and cold with sun and small amounts of cloud, brisk breeze, and temperatures reaching a maximum of 4 °C.
