A mild few days follows recent heavy snowfall

We've seen the last of the snow and it's turning much milder over the next few days. Also unsettled weather and rain will add to the snow melting, giving us a risk of localised flooding.

For the rest of today, a fine afternoon, enjoy the sunshine as highs climb to around 5 degrees Celsius. Take care on the roads though as there are still patches of black ice around, even on treated main roads, and the sun may be blinding, especially as it shines on windscreens, which become more opaque with grit and salt spatter from the roads.

It should stay dry until around 6pm today, then we are in for a wet and windy evening. Temps drop early, then rise; 2 or 3 degrees Celsius, values rising through the night, frost free.

The West Midlands is most at risk of flooding overnight, but the rain should clear by Sunday morning.
