Snow and ice warning issued by the Met Office
A SNOW and ice warning has been issued to last until midnight tonight.
The Met Office warned that outbreaks of sleet or snow may affect parts of south west England today , as temperatures were predicted to fall below freezing last night.
It is likely that between 2cm and 5cm of snow will fall in the south west, with a risk of as much as 5cm to 10cm, especially on higher ground.
However, The Met Office has also said that due to less cold air trying to push north eastwards into the area, there would be a fine balance between rain and snow, with rain more likely on the coast.
