“This will move northeastwards and turn increasingly to snow over the high ground of Wales, parts of the Midlands and parts of northern England overnight and through Thursday morning, with some snow to lower levels later.

“Much of the lower ground will see little if any snow accumulating, but a patchy 1-3 cm is likely in some places, with 5 cm above 200 metres and possibly 10 cm on roads above 300 metres.

“There remains some uncertainty in the exact northward extent of the sleet and snow into Thursday morning before it clears eastwards”.
