SOMERSET could see snow in the coming days, it has been warned.

The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for 'snow and ice' which is in force from noon tomorrow (January 29) until 11am on Wednesday morning. 

"Rain turning to snow, especially on hills, then turning icy," the warning said.

The Met Office also warns to expect "some roads and railways likely to be affected with longer journey times by road, bus and train services, some injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces, probably some ice on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths".

The warning comes almost a year after Taunton and surrounding areas were battered by the 'Beast From The East', which brought heavy snow across Somerset.

A spokesman added: "A band of rain will arrive across Wales, northern and western England through the middle of Tuesday, then move eastwards through Tuesday afternoon and evening.

"The rain will turn quickly to snow on hills, then also to low levels in places.

"Three to five centimetres of snow is likely above 200 metres, with up to 10cm in a few places.

"A patchy covering of 1 to 2cm is possible at low levels, although some places will see no snow at all.

"As skies clear overnight, ice is likely to form on some surfaces.

"In addition, wintry showers will follow into western areas on Wednesday morning, giving further slight accumulations of snow in a few places."
