More snow to come in the week ahead

Ice and snow can bring travel disruption

19 December 2010 - The icy weather shows no sign of loosening its grip on the UK over the next few days, with further snow in some areas potentially leading to disruption to travel networks.

Snow is expected to affect parts of southern England and south Wales as we head into the new working week, with the risk of up to 20cm of fresh snow over the high ground of southwest England and south Wales.

Met Office Chief Forecaster, Steve Willington said: "There is the risk of further snow across parts of southern Britain tonight and through tomorrow. Snow, combined with widespread ice and freezing temperatures will lead to the risk of significant disruption through Monday."

The public are advised to stay up to date with the latest weather forecasts and warnings on the web and television and should be prepared to change their weekend plans based on the weather forecast.
