Isle Of Wight Included In Warning For Snow And Ice

The Isle of Wight has been included in a weather warning for snow and ice.

The Met Office has updated its yellow weather warning - which covers most of the south of England.

It comes into force at midnight tonight (Wednesday) and lasts until 9am Thursday (9).

The Met Office said:

An area of rain, sleet and snow is expected to develop over southwest England during Tuesday evening and move east during early Wednesday before clearing mid-morning.

"Whilst drier conditions may develop for a time through the middle of the day, a further spell of sleet and snow is likely to develop during the afternoon and move east into the evening. There remains significant uncertainty in how far north snow develops, as well as whether accumulations are focused mainly over higher ground.

"At this stage, the focus for the higher snow accumulations is across England south of the M4 during later Wednesday, where there is a chance that some places could see 5-10 cm falling in a few hours.

"Earlier in the day and across the wider warning area, accumulations are expected to be lower, typically 1-3 cm. As snow clears on Wednesday night, clearing skies will result in ice developing on untreated surfaces, with impacts lingering into Thursday morning."
