A YELLOW weather warning for snow has been issued for much of England and Wales later this week.

A period of snowfall could bring some disruption on Thursday, February 8, into the early hours of Friday, February 9, the Met Office has said.

The affected area stretches from Newcastle in the North East of England to Hereford in the South West.

The entire breadth of North and Mid Wales falls within the warning zone.

There is a small chance that power cuts will occur with other disruptions to services like mobile phone coverage.

There is a slight chance some rural communities could become “cut off”.

There is a small chance of travel delays on roads with some stranded vehicles and passengers along with delayed or cancelled rail services and flights.

The Met Office warning has a very low likelihood and a medium impact, though these ratings - and the location of the warning zone - are subject to change.
