Met Office issues yellow weather warning for snow for Kent

Snow 2018 Feb

Met Office spokeswoman Nicky Maxey said there was potential for further yellow warnings to be issued as a result of that front and there was a chance of gale force winds.

The Chief Forecaster's assessment said: "Rain will increasingly turn to hill snow above around 200m during Friday evening".

Parts of Scotland and England may face more snow.

In addition, snow showers are likely throughout Sunday in the South East, East Anglia and into the East Midlands.

The Met Office state that a yellow warning means there is the chance of "severe weather".

The notorious "Beast From The East", dubbed due to it's origins from Russian Federation, swept the United Kingdom at the end of February bringing us snowy conditions out of the ordinary for this time of year.

The Chief Forecaster added: "High pressure over Scandinavia will feed a very cold easterly airstream across the country during this weekend". There will also be a significant wind chill, making it feel colder than the temperatures suggest.

"However, it is too early to know how much may accumulate, but current forecasts suggest there is only a low risk of disruption".
