SNOW could hit parts of Herefordshire this week.

BBC Weather forecasts that sleet showers could fall in the county between 6am and 7am on Saturday (February 24).

This month has been unseasonably mild, with Hereford even becoming the warmest place in the county last Wednesday (February 14).


Heavy rain is forecast for Herefordshire tomorrow (February 22); however, the county is just out of the yellow warning sign for rain that has been issued by the Met Office. 

There are, however, four flood alerts in place. These are for the river Frome, the river Leadon catchment, the river Lugg south of Leominster, and the river Wye in Herefordshire. 

Tomorrow afternoon is set to be drier, with sunny spell, which will continue into Friday (February 23).

However, the clearer skies will mean it will feel colder than it has of late. There could be a frost first thing on Saturday (February 24) morning, leading to possible light snow flurries.

The day will get warmer as the day progresses, with highs of 9C by the afternoon.
