The temperature is predicted to fall to zero degrees Celsius in the Hilgay area on Wednesday.

An Atlantic frontal system looks likely to bring rain into parts of southwestern Britain on Wednesday.

As this rain moves further east into colder air, there is a chance of this rain turning to snow.

The Met Office says the extent of any snow is very uncertain, but two to five cm could fall across England, with a small chance of 10 to 15cm settling in a few places, most likely on high ground.

As the rain and snow clears on Wednesday night there is a risk of widespread ice forming on untreated surfaces.
