Parts of the Isle of Wight could see snowfall of up to 5cm tomorrow night (Thursday).

The Isle of Wight Met Service is predicting that between 3-5cm could fall in more central parts of the Island.

However, the snow is then expected to turn to rain, preventing any major travel disruption.

Jamie Russell said:

“Heavy rain will push in from the south during Thursday evening which is likely to turn to snow as it moves inland across the Island.

“The latest data suggests that 3-5cm of snow is possible in places. Later in the evening the winds are likely to turn to the southwest which will push milder weather across the Island turning any falling snow back to rain and leading to a rapid thaw of lying snow.

“Things may change as we approach the event.”

A Met Office Yellow Weather Warning comes into force at 3pm tomorrow until 12pm on Friday.
