The Southwest could see snow this weekend, the Met Office has said.
The Exeter-based office’s forecast for Devon this weekend has said snow could fall on high ground in the Southwest between Friday and Sunday.
According to forecasters this weekend the region will see showers or longer spells of rain on Friday and Saturday. Also a risk of snow, mainly over hills, and gales in exposure.
The news comes as a weather warning of snow has been issued for Wales on Friday, the day that is supposed to mark the last official day of winter.
A Chief forecaster at the Met Office said of the warning for Wales: “An area of low pressure is expected to move eastwards on Friday. There is considerable uncertainty in its track and therefore on the risk and location of any snow.
“This warning will be kept under review and the public are advised to keep up to date with the forecast and warnings.”
Before the weekend Devon will see a mixture of sunny spells and scattered showers, which are likely to be heavy at times, with hail and thunder also possible.
The office also added that more persistent rain and strong winds are likely on Thursday night.
