UK snow radar: Met Office warns of SNOW as temperatures plunge - will it snow near YOU?

has issued a yellow weather warning for snow in Wales and The West Midlands on Thursday (April 4.) Up to 6cm of snowfall and rain is forecast throughout Thursday morning.

The snow may cause train cancellations and slower journey times by road.

The Met Office has advised those travelling in snow to take precautions and make sure their cars and bikes are prepared for the wintry conditions.

Snowfall is expected to last until Thursday afternoon and chilly temperatures will not rise above 4C.

A Met Office spokesman said: “Some roads and railways likely to be affected with longer journey times by road, bus and train services.”

Bookmakers Ladbrokes have now slashed the odds on the UK seeing snow this month.

With temperatures likely to drop, the bookies now make it just a 1/5 shot for any part of the UK to see snow this month.

What is a yellow weather warning?

The Met Office ranks the severity of its weather warnings from yellow (low impact) to red (dangerous weather.)

Yellow warnings are issued when it’s likely the weather will cause some low-level impacts, including some disruption to travel.

They can also be issued when the weather could bring much more severe impacts on the majority of people, but the certainty of those impacts occurring is much lower.
