The Met Office have issued a yellow weather warning for this evening, forecasting mixed showers which could fall as snow across the Bath area overnight and into tomorrow.
The Met Office have said: “Rain showers will become frequent on Thursday evening and heavy at times, increasingly turning to snow on high ground and inland, with a longer spell of sleet and snow moving southeastwards across Wales and into parts of the West Midlands and Westcountry overnight.
“Snow accumulations of 5-10 cm are likely across Wales above 200 metres, with 1-4 cm possible at low levels well inland from the coast. Ice is also likely to form on untreated surfaces.
“Across England, smaller amounts of snow are expected, but 1-3 cm is possible above 200 metres, with some small slushy accumulations to low levels very locally.
“With some of the showers falling as sleet or rain, ice is more likely to prove a hazard here where surfaces are untreated.
“Please be aware of the likelihood of some travel disruption and difficult driving conditions.
Temperatures in Bath aren’t likely to rise above 5ºc today, with lows of 1ºc this evening.
Ice is expected to be an issue tomorrow morning.
The Met Office’s chief forecaster said: “A cold, unstable northwesterly airstream covers the UK. This will bring showers, which will become heavier, more frequent and increasingly wintry later on Thursday.
“In addition, a trough will bring a more persistent spell of sleet and snow southeastwards overnight – most of the snow falling across Wales, but smaller amounts may feed down into some western parts of England.
“Amounts of snow towards the south and east of the warning area are uncertain and many places will see very little, but ice will be a likely hazard in any case. This warning will be kept under review and updated as necessary.”
