A WEATHER warning for snow and ice has been issued for Herefordshire.

The Met Office yellow warning for snow and ice is set to come into force in Herefordshire at 9pm today (March 6) and will remain in force until 10am tomorrow.

The Met Office said a band of rain will edge southwards through the course of Monday evening and early Tuesday, this rain turning to snow on hills and perhaps to lower levels in places.


There will be little or no accumulations of snow for many areas, the Met Office said, but one to two centimetres could settle in some spots, most likely over high ground and southern parts of the warning area.

The Met Office said the rain and snow is then expected to turn light and patchy as it slowly clears southern England on Tuesday.

As skies clear overnight, ice is also likely to form readily on untreated surfaces.
