Met Office issues yellow weather warning for snow for Kent

After the Beast from the East and Storm Emma some areas could see snow again this week and next week

Winter may not be done with Scotland just yet.

A yellow weather warning has been issued for parts of the east and south of England - including the Island - on Sunday (18).

The cold snap may well last into next week and there is likely to be at least some snow in parts of the UK.

A front moving from the south-west towards the north-east is set to bring heavy rain on Wednesday and Thursday along with strong winds.

Looking ahead to next week, the Met Office says: "It may become rather cold for most, accentuated by the wind, with widespread frosts possible".

Snow is expected from 5pm on Friday (16th March) and continue throughout the night into Saturday, with most of it coming down on Sunday (18th March).

Cold winds blowing in from the east will see temperatures drop back down to near freezing by the weekend.

"There's a chance that some of that rain could turn to snow over higher ground".

The sudden drop in temperature at the weekend, with winds from the east, have led to the weather phenomenon being dubbed the "Beast from the East Two" after a similar front brought freezing temperatures and heavy snow to the United Kingdom in early March.
