The Met Office have issued a Red weather warning today, 1st March.

They have warned that heavy snow and blizzard conditions are expected.

The warning is in place for parts of Wales, Somerset and Devon.

The alert is from 3pm today, with the worst conditions expected this afternoon.

The met office said on their website:

“A spell of heavy snow and blizzard conditions is expected. The snow will be accompanied by very strong easterly winds leading to severe drifting. Some places could also see significant ice build up due to freezing rain from later on Thursday evening, most likely in the south of the area. Long delays and cancellations of public transport seem highly likely. Some roads are likely to become blocked by deep snow, stranding vehicles and passengers. Long interruptions to power supplies and other utilities are very likely to occur, along with damage to trees and other structures due to heavy snow or ice,”
