"Rain and hill snow will move eastwards late Wednesday evening and during the early hours of Thursday. "Snow is expected over hills and mountains in Wales and also over the Cotswolds and Chilterns. In southern Wales 2-5 cm of snow is likely, mainly above 200 metres, whilst 1-3 cm snow is likely over the Cotswolds, Chilterns, and parts of the Midlands above 150 metres. "Away from hills, rain may turn to sleet and snow for a time over parts of the Midlands, East Anglia and the northern Home Counties. "Accumulations at these low-levels will be mostly small, especially on roads, but a centimetre or so is possible in one or two places. "Rain, sleet and snow will quickly clear southeastwards by late morning and any snow at lower levels will soon thaw."
