The Met Office has issued weather warnings across the East and West Midlands for this weekend as there is the potential for more snow. The Yellow 'be aware' alert is in place as rain heading our way could well turn to snow when it hits the colder air across The Midlands. At this stage there is some uncertainty but do keep checking for updates.

Weather fronts moving eastwards bringing cloud and wintry showers

As for the rest of today as a weather front moves steadily eastwards it will be cloudy everywhere with occasional outbreaks of rain, sleet and snow, but it will remain mostly dry especially across the east which will hold onto the brighter spells for longest. The wind is lighter than the past few days so it feel less raw even though temperatures are only reaching 5c.

Tonight the wintry showers will creep east wards. The showers will be fairly patchy but nevertheless we will see some outbreaks of rain, sleet and snow particularly across the West Midlands. Temperatures will be around freezing meaning icy roads and pavements where we've seen the showers.

If you are up bright and early in the East Midlands you might catch some sunny spells tomorrow morning but they will be fairly short lived as cloud continues to spread east. So a cloudy morning across the entire region with occasional wintry showers.

The West Midlands will be much brighter in the afternoon as the showers makes further progress east. Temperatures once again will be around 5c so it will feel similar to today.

Tomorrow night another weather front will bring us further cloud and wintry showers which will hang around through the day on Saturday.
