Through the course of Thursday night and into Friday area of rain is expected to push Southwards across the country and as it hits the colder air currently in place it’s likely to turn to snow. There’s still some uncertainty over totals and which areas are likely to see the worst of the snowfall but I think the Midlands South-Eastwards are likely to see a period of heavy snowfall with some fairly large accumulations in places.

The map below is to be taken as a guide, an update to this and a weather warning will be issued on Thursday evening to take into account all the latest information.
