Weather warnings a-plenty for the rest of the week, but snow could finally be on the cards for North Devon...

There was no white Christmas for North Devon, but it seems that snow could finally be heading our way.

The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for snow and ice, starting with showers of hail, sleet and snow on Tuesday evening.

Some areas could see 3-6cm in places, and icy patches could form on untreated road surfaces.

A chief forecaster said: “A cold westerly airstream will spread across the area on Tuesday evening, allowing frequent showers in the overnight period to fall as snow, especially over high ground.

“There is some uncertainty over how much snow will settle at low levels, and many places within the yellow area may miss the snow altogether. However, where snow does occur it is likely to be heavy and produce a covering quite quickly.”

The warning for snow is in place from 6pm on Tuesday until midday on Wednesday, when further warning are in place for wind and rain.

The forecaster added: “Another Atlantic low pressure system is expected to deepen significantly as it approaches the UK.

“The low pressure centre is likely to track across the northwest of Britain, whilst an active frontal system comes southeast across England and Wales. 
“This system has the potential to produce 20-40 mm of rainfall in the warning area, with as much as 60-80 mm over higher ground in the west.

“These rainfall amounts are likely to lead to standing water and also the risk of localised river flooding.”
