17 February 2010
The cold February weather is predicted to continue with an increasing risk of snow for parts of the UK.
This means that there is likely to be some disruption to travel due to lying snow or icy conditions over the next few days.
The unsettled conditions will see rain turn increasingly to snow as it moves north-eastwards during Thursday over parts of Wales and central England, especially higher ground.
Amounts of snow will vary from place to place but there is the potential for up to 10 cm in some areas.
The threat of snow remains with us during Friday and through the weekend, as the cold weather continues with widespread overnight frosts and the risk of further snowfall in places.
