The Met Office has placed North Devon under a yellow warning for snow and ice tomorrow (Tuesday) and Wednesday.

North Devon could see some snow this week as the Met Office places the region under a yellow alert for snow and ice.

Between 5am tomorrow (Tuesday) and 9am on Wednesday North Devon could have snow showers and icy stretches developing overnight.

A chief forecaster said: “Following a band of rain, sleet and snow, clearing southeastwards, rain, sleet and snow showers are likely to increasingly affect western parts of the UK.

“Snow showers are likely to be frequent in western Scotland and northern Northern Ireland, where hail and thunder are also possible.

“These will gradually fade overnight Tuesday into Wednesday, with icy stretches developing as skies clear, particularly where early snow has melted and then refrozen overnight.

“0.5-3, locally 5 cm of snow is likely at low levels, with some places above 200 m seeing 7-10 cm.

“As is usually the case with showers, not everywhere within the warning area will see them, and along immediate coastal fringes exposed to the northwest, they may fall predominantly as rain.”
