The Metrological Office is predicting a day of sleet and rain being the more likely option rather than more snow for most of the West Country, including Swindon. Remember, roads are still likely to be icy, so drive carefully and if not on the major, cleared roads, only travel if you have to.

“Ice has formed on some surfaces Monday morning as well as some snow falling, with small accumulations above around 100 m. Some snow accumulations of 2-5 cm are possible above around 100 m but at lower levels no accumulations are expected.

Instead a mixture of rain and sleet is most likely. Some injuries are possible from slips and falls on icy surfaces and there will probably be some icy patches on untreated roads and cycle paths. Some roads and railways are likely to be affected with longer and more difficult journeys.”
