Met Office warns of yellow snow alert for western England’s weather conditions.

An unexpected drop in temperature has led to the Met Office issuing a yellow weather warning following snow in western parts of England. The warning area stretches from Bristol in the south to Worcester in the north, and from Hereford in the west to Swindon in the east. The sudden change in weather caught many off guard, with some drivers sharing videos of heavy snowfall on motorways in the west of England. The Met Office alert, issued around 6 am on Saturday, mentioned the possibility of challenging driving conditions in certain areas due to a brief snow spell. The warning was in place until 10 am, with forecasts suggesting that rain bands could turn into light snow, resulting in up to 3cm of snow in some regions. Motorists were urged to avoid driving in heavy snow and icy conditions unless absolutely necessary. National Highways in the south-west provided updates with CCTV camera images showing snow on motorways, advising travelers to allow extra time for their journey. A yellow Met Office snow warning was set to expire at 10:00 am.
