More snow on the way?

Warnings have been issued for The Midlands for more snow this afternoon – this time across the East Midlands and Staffordshire. Lower levels won't see much settling but higher ground – above 200 – could see 2-5cm – and 5-10cm above 300m.

We also have a Yellow Warning in place for snow across Lincolnshire tomorrow with another 1-3cm possible.

Plus a Yellow Warning for icy conditions across Derbyshire and Staffordshire tonight.

This afternoon, wintry showers will be blown eastwards on the strong south-westerly, so don't be surprised to see the odd flurry of snow although it won't amount to much. It's later in the afternoon when the showers will be replaced with a more organised band of rain, sleet and snow. This is likely to cause some disruption for rush hour especially across the East Midlands as it travels south and eastwards this evening. The Peak District could see another few centimetres but elsewhere it won't amount to a great deal. The West Midlands will see more wintry showers too.

It will be windy everywhere this afternoon and feeling very cold too.

Tonight the wintry downpours will continue for a time before it turns drier later tonight into the early hours. With temperatures close to freezing, ice will be an issue and it will remain very windy. By dawn another band of rain, sleet and snow will make headway into northern counties. It will sink south and eastwards through the morning tomorrow. This band will be patchy so with drier spells too.

Tomorrow afternoon will be much brighter with the best of the dry and sunny weather in the West Midlands. Further east there will be snow showers across Lincolnshire blowing in off the North Sea. The wind tomorrow will be an issue coming straight from the Arctic so particularly cold.

More wintry showers will head our way tomorrow night too.
