The Met Office have issued a yellow warning of snow for Thursday which could bring disruption to Hereford and towns northerly such as Bromyard, Leominster and Malvern.

The weather warning will be in place from 3am on February 8 and will end at 3am on February 9.

The Met Office expects that there could be a chance for power cuts to occur, as well as travel delays and disruption which could leave rural communities cut off and real issues for those commuting in Herefordshire.

The Met Office says that a band of rain, sleet, and increasingly snow, will push north on Thursday bringing up to two centimetres of snow at lower-levels, two to five centimetres of snow on ground above 200m, and perhaps as much as 10-20cm above 400m.

They added that the snow is likely to ease as the day progresses and may turn back into rain or drizzle in Herefordshire, and that there is some uncertainty of where the boundary of the warning

will lie, although that level of uncertainty will lower the closer Thursday approaches and as confidence increases in that aspect.
