Cold weather will hit on Sunday after a relatively mild week.
A SPELL of sleet and snow is expected to hit South West England on Sunday following a relatively mild week.
The Met Office today (Friday) issued a yellow grade weather warning for snow for parts of the region.
The warning carried through until 9pm on Monday, with strong, easterly winds that will feel very cold.
Accumulations of three to five cm of snow could also occur quite widely.

A chief forecaster for the Met Office said: “A low pressure system moving up from the Atlantic will come up against the influx of cold air from the north, bringing persistent sleet and snow.
“At the same time winds will increase, with gusts to 50 mph on coasts and hills.
