Britain is about to plunge into wintry mode with heavy snowfalls predicted in some areas of the country, the Met Office has said.

People in south and mid Wales have been told to expect up to 15cm of snow - around six inches - tomorrow night and Thursday morning.

Up to five centimetres - around two inches - has been predicted for London and southern England on Thursday. Snowfalls of up to 10cm, or nearly four inches, could hit areas of high ground.

Weather forecaster Paul Knightley said cold air from the north mixing with an active mild weather system from the Atlantic would bring the snowfalls.

There have already been small snowfalls in the South West and tonight parts of eastern England will see some snow showers.

"On Wednesday night and Thursday morning a much more active weather system comes in from the South West," he said.

"Overnight Wednesday and Thursday morning are going to see quite a significant band of sleet and snow into south west England and South Wales and eventually by morning across much of Wales into the Midlands and into the London area and southern England as well as the South East.

"The snow will be potentially disruptive in London because it is predicted for rush hour and is going to cause some significant disruption, I think.

"It will probably be some of the heaviest snow in the last couple of years in the London area."

How wonderful Shirley.

I have just looked at the forecast for Bodrum and they have rain for the next 4 days, I think they have been waiting for this as they haven't had much rain this winter.


Andy the snow is still forecast
Thursday Twickenham - heavy snow 1°C

The sky is so blue here in London I really can't imagine snow today.... but it is very cold. I had to scrape the ice off the inside of the car this morning, much to the delight of my 8 year old! (Why do boys have such a warped sense of humour)!

UPDATE

Heavy snow warning prompts travel concerns

Heavy snow is expected across the south of England

Up to 15cm of snow - around six inches - could fall in the south of England and mid Wales in the next 24 hours, forecasters are warning.

Forecasters issued an early severe weather warning on Tuesday.

Up to five centimetres - around two inches - of snow is predicted for London.

Paul Knightley, forecaster for MeteoGroup UK, the weather division of the Press Association, said cold air from the north mixing with an "active'' mild weather system from the Atlantic would bring the snowfalls.

"On Wednesday night and Thursday morning a much more active weather system comes in from the South West,'' he said.

"Overnight Wednesday and Thursday morning are going to see quite a significant band of sleet and snow into south west England and South Wales and eventually by morning across much of Wales into the Midlands and into the London area and southern England as well as the South East,'' he said.

"The snow will be potentially disruptive in London because it is predicted for rush hour and is going to cause some significant disruption, I think.

The Met Office issued an early warning of severe weather.

Drivers were being advised by the Highways Agency to check weather forecasts and road conditions before they travel.

The agency said yesterday that 400 salt spreading vehicles were on stand-by.

England's motorways and major A-roads will be treated with salt before the snow arrives and work to treat and clear the roads would continue throughout the cold snap, it said.

Road users should check weather forecasts and road conditions before they set out and listen to travel bulletins while they were on the road.

The agency has advised against travel if the weather is severe.
