WINTRY snow showers could fall in parts of Herefordshire over the next 24 hours.

The chances are that places that are on higher ground are most likely to see it; however, according to the BBC, there could even be sleet falling in Hereford in the early hours of tomorrow (Saturday) morning. 

A Met Office weather warning for rain is currently in place for Herefordshire, which expires at 3pm today (Friday). 


The warning, which covers the West Midlands, south east, south west and most of Wales, says: "Rain is expected on Friday leading to some disruption. Bus and train services will probably take longer. Spray and flooding on roads will probably make journey times longer."

However, Met Office forecasters say that snow could also affect higher routes and communities for a brief time. 

This includes Hay Bluff, which is just over the border into Wales, where heavy snow could fall from lunchtime today (Friday).

Temperatures on the hills there may not get above freezing, with a tomorrow (Saturday) being another cold today with further snow flurries.
