West Northamptonshire and the far west of Cambridgeshire

Rain is now moving east across the country and turning to snow as it mixes with the cold air over the UK.

A Met Office yellow warning for snow has been issued for parts of Wales, the Midlands and Northern England. Western parts of Northamptonshire and the far west of Cambridgeshire are also included in the warning area. In these places, there's a risk of settling snow with 2 to 5 centimetres locally and 10 centimetres over hills.

Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Milton Keynes, inland Essex, west Norfolk, west Suffolk and the rest of Northamptonshire and Cambridgeshire:

Patchy rain, sleet and snow will arrive later tonight, gradually petering out during Wednesday afternoon. Snow is likely above 150 metres but also occasionally at low-levels during any more prolonged rain or sleet.

The rest of Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex

Mostly dry, although a few light sleet or snow flurries cannot be ruled out. Grey and cold.
