Met Office issues snow warning for London this weekend

14 March 2018

Met Office spokeswoman Nicky Maxey said there was potential for further yellow warnings to be issued as a result of that front and there was a chance of gale force winds.

The chief forecaster added: "Around 5-10 cm of snow may accumulate on high ground above 200m with 20cm possible over hill routes with some drifting in strong south-easterly winds".

Don't put away those winter hats and gloves just yet: parts of the United Kingdom are set for rain, high winds and more snow this week, forecasters have warned.

In the video above, Met Office presenter Alex Deakin explains where and why it's likely to get much colder.

"Some roads and railways will be affected with longer journey times".

That band of wet weather is expected to move northeastwards across the United Kingdom but to weaken.

A range of severe weather warnings have been issued by the Met Office for towards the end of the week - with the North East expected to be hit by the cold weather on Friday night, into Saturday.

There are fears the Beast from the East is due to return, but will it be more of a pussycat?

Parts of western and northern Aberdeenshire, including a stretch of the busy A96, are included in the at risk area.
