Speaking previously meteorologist at the East Anglian-based forecasters Weatherquest, Adam Dury said: "We have a band of low pressure coming in on Wednesday night and that might just turn to a sleet and snow mix on Thursday morning.

"There is a chance of some snowfall but it is likely going to be falling onto quite wet surfaces - so chance of accumulation is very low."

It will be a cold and frosty start for most but generally remaining cloudy for most of the day with some outbreaks of rain sinking southwards. 

Police are also warning drivers to take care in the wintery conditions.
