A snow warning for the South-east of England has been issued by the Met Office for Sunday (March 18).

The Met Office has forecast snow and ice for the region.

This means snow could be falling in areas such as Norfolk, Suffolk and Yorkshire in the early hours of the morning on Saturday (March 17).

From 00:05 on Saturday, a band of rain will turn to snow. And that may come as a shock to the system for some whose bodies may struggle to cope in cold weather.

"As we get closer to the weekend, colder air will see the temperatures drop considerably".

"On Sunday it will be very cold as well, most temperatures will be below zero again and more snow will fall".

This band of weather will gradually ease during Saturday morning as it moves south-westwards, allowing ice to form as it clears.

"These showers may become more prolonged, particularly during the evening".

Laura Patterson, chief operational meteorologist at the Met Office said "a cold easterly airflow" is expected to return during the weekend. Showers are likely to become more frequent across the southeast into the evening, with narrow bands of up to 5 cm of snow accumulating.

However some places could see up to 20cm of snow on high ground.

Drivers have been warned by the RAC that they should ensure they are ready for potentially risky road conditions.
