The Met Office has issued a Yellow Warning for the following areas for 2-4cm of snow on lower levels and up to 15cm in parts of the Peak District:
Telford and Wrekin
Today is the calm before the storm with very uneventful conditions. It will remain very cloudy with occasional light snow flurries although many places will be dry. It is feeling very cold with highs of 2c, add in the bitter easterly wind and expect it to feel more like freezing.
The cloud will break up a little ahead of the weather front allowing temperatures to drop below freezing especially where we have snow on the ground. Expect a widespread ground frost overnight.
Eastern areas will se some brightness first thing but the cloud will build from the west and produce some light snow showers. As we move through the morning the snow will become heavier across all parts of the West Midlands where we could see another 2-4cm.
The East Midlands won't see quite as much snow as it spreads eastwards through the afternoon. The exception to this is higher ground in The Peak District which may see accumulations of 15cm on top of what's already there.
Through tomorrow evening the snow will turn to rain and wash away any lying snow. As we move through the night temperatures will actually rise setting us up for a milder Thursday.
Thursday: Expect rain at first before it turns brighter later. It will feel milder.Friday and Saturday: Dry but cloudy, temperatures around average.
