Met Office weather forecast: What is the snow forecast for tomorrow?

The national forecaster warned of developing icy conditions overnight, putting millions of motorists at risk tomorrow.

A yellow ice warning is now in effect for southern and central parts of England in effect until Tuesday March 20 at 9am.

Thermometers will plunge below freezing tonight and parts of the country can still expect further flurries of snow tonight.

The ’s chief forecaster said: “After a clear start in many areas with the temperature falling below freezing through Monday evening, it will turn cloudier from the north, with the possibility of some wintry showers in places.

“The temperature may come back above freezing in some places for a time, but will fall below again where the cloud breaks.

“Therefore, ice is likely to form where untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths are left wet after snow melts during the day, or partly melted snow refreezes, and where wintry showers occur overnight.”

Heading into Tuesday the worst snowfall will have likely already passed but .

Tomorrow looks to be a dry but frosty day with sunny periods in western areas with moderate winds.

Towards the east some scattered wintry showers are expected before turning to rain later in the day.

Met Office spokeswoman Nicola Maxey said temperatures will begin to pick up tomorrow but will mostly remain in the single digits area.

She said: “As we go through the start of the week it could turn a little unsettled with further showers and there will be a wintry mix, the risk of snow will decrease over the next few days.”

Met forecaster Alex Deakin also teased temperatures will begin to climb this week, more reminiscent of spring than winter.

He said: “Slowly but surely temperatures will begin climbing this week, it might even feel a little bit like spring after what was a very wintry weekend.

Adding: “Increasingly cloud thickening over the east and a few showers coming in overnight and anywhere it could turn icy.

“Particularly where the snow on the ground has melted through the day as temperatures tumble down to or close to freezing.

“Certainly well below where there is any snow lying on the ground and in rural areas, so it’s another chilly start to Tuesday but by and large a dry day.”

Thereafter the sunny spell will give way to wind and rain in the north on Wednesday, while remaining drier further down south.

Rain and showers will continue to pelt the country through to the end of the week.
