Warmer weather will return to the UK, including the South East, on Thursday after Wednesday's snow is replaced by rain. Snow has hit much of the country and a light dusting is expected in the South East this evening, but it will quickly be followed by rain.

That will pave the way for much milder temperatures on Thursday, forecasters said. The Environment Agency has seven flood warnings in place in other parts of the country, and 81 less serious flood alerts, mainly in the South East.
