passengers, as well as delays or cancellations to rail and air travel. Some rural communities could become cut off. Power cuts may also occur and other services, such as mobile phones, may be affected. The warning has been issued between 16:00 Mon 26th and 23:55 Tue 27th.

Chief Forecaster's assessment
From late Monday afternoon, snow showers may become aligned into bands pushing into parts of southeast England. Where this occurs there is the potential for accumulations of 5-10 cm locally whilst nearby locations may see much less frequent showers and only small accumulations of 0-2 cm in places. At this stage the development of these shower bands and the exact locations and timing of these is very uncertain.
