Yeovil Express:

The warning states: "Areas of snow are expected Thursday onwards into early Friday.

"Snow will slowly fade away during Friday.

"Close to the south coast of England some rain is also expected.

"Any single period of snow is not expected to last more than 6 to 9 hours but some snow accumulations are likely with 1-3 cm likely in places within the warning area and the potential for 5-10 cm, perhaps particularly over Wales and South West England.

"Snow amounts will vary markedly across England and Wales with many places seeing very little accumulating snow, more so in East Anglia and the Midlands.

"Even where snow does not fall icy stretches are still to be expected."

The Met Office has predicted there is a 60 per cent chance snow will fall in Taunton from 7am until 10am and a 50 per cent chance snow will fall until 3pm.
