Met Office weather warnings for snow are already in place for much of England and Wales and an updated weather alert just issued has warned of more than 6 inches of snow in parts and has been extended to last four days up until Thursday. 

Much of the snow will cease by Monday evening into Tuesday, a new raft of warnings have been issued from 10am on Wednesday to 6am on Thursday.

The Met Office said: “An Atlantic frontal system looks likely to bring rain into parts of southwestern Britain on Wednesday.

“As this moves further east into colder air there is a chance of this rain turning to snow. The extent of any snow is very uncertain, but 2 to 5 cm could fall across a swathe of southern Wales, central and southern England, with a small chance of 10 to 15 cm settling in a few places, most likely on high ground above 200 metres.

“As the rain and snow clears on Wednesday night there is a risk of widespread ice forming on untreated surfaces.”
