Met Office snow weather warnings now in place for Wednesday and Thursday

There’s something about snow which we all love.

Whether it’s making snow angels with the family, or the possibility of not travelling into work, when the white stuff falls it’s normally a good day.

According to the Met Office, there’s a possibility it could snow in London on Wednesday (December 30) and Thursday (December 31).

The national weather service has issued a yellow weather warning for snow and ice across the city on both days.

This means that there is a small chance of disruption from snow and ice.

The warning is in place from 10am on Wednesday to 6am on Thursday. Every part of London is affected in the warning.

On the Met Office website it says: “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 two to five 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.”

According to the Met Office, there is a slight chance that bus and train services may be delayed or cancelled, with some road closures and longer journey times.

There is a small chance of travel delays on roads, along with disruption to rail and air travel.

Some power cuts may occur, while it is also a possibility the icy conditions will lead to injury if people fall or slip.

It’s expected to be freezing in the capital this week, with temperatures dropping as low as -1C in some areas.

Currently, forecasters believe snow will fall at around 9pm on Wednesday, with flurries continuing until 6am on Thursday.

There’s also a possibility snow will fall on Friday (January 1), too.

What a great start to 2021 that would be!
