Weather Warning For Snow In Essex

The Met Office is warning Essex could get a covering of snow tonight as it puts in place a 'yellow' warning for it.

Snow weather warning

The warning, which means 'Be Aware', is in place for all of the county except coastal areas between 8pm tonight and 10am tomorrow.

The Met Office said: "Rain is likely to turn to sleet and snow in places during Wednesday night across parts of central and eastern England, before gradually easing and clearing away southeastwards on Thursday morning.

"Some places will see rain or sleet rather than snow, but at least for some of the higher ground, and more locally at lower elevations, accumulations of 2-5 cm of snow are possible, which could fall within 2-3 hours.

"Please be aware of the risk of localised disruption to travel, and keep up to date with forecasts and warnings, which will be kept under close review.

"This warning has been updated to take the main risk area further east, although there is a risk of ice following rain, sleet and snow further north and west".
