How much snow will there be?

A Yellow Alert has been issued by The Met Office as we could see 2-4cm of snow on lower levels and up to 10cm in the Peak District. It will be windy, too, causing blizzard conditions.

Through today, a good 3-6 hours of steady snow is quite possible before it gradually turns patchy and increasingly to rain and sleet around dusk.

We'll see patchy rain and sleet through the evening before a heavier band of rain sweeps eastwards washing away any snow. It will remain windy but temperatures will actually rise overnight.


The rain will clear through the morning to reveal much drier conditions, just with a few isolated showers in the West Midlands. We will enjoy some good spells of sunshine and the wind will be lighter. It will feel much milder than of late too with temperatures hitting 9c, feeling very pleasant in any sunshine.

Tomorrow night with the clear spells a touch of frost is possible and a few mist patches.

Friday and the weekend look dry with sunny spells, perhaps more in the way of cloud on Saturday. It will remain fairly mild over the weekend but we're not out of the woods just yet as the cold weather will make a return next week.
