BBC Weather: UK set for sleet and snow

Snow is forecast to hit several regions of Britain over the course of the next few days prompting the Met Office to issue several yellow and amber weather warnings for snow and ice. The weather forecaster warns of up to eight inches (20cm) of snowfall in some regions. But is it going to snow in London?

Weather maps and charts reveal intense snowfall for many parts of the country throughout the next few days.

The amber warning advises of rain turning into snow across Scotland on Wednesday afternoon and evening, initially on high ground, but increasingly to lower levels.

During Wednesday evening and night the risk of snow will extend southwards into more of northern England.

In total, up to eight inches (20cm) of snow is likely to accumulate above 200 metres with greater amounts at higher elevations.

Snow will persist into Thursday morning, slowly dying out during the afternoon.

The warning is in effect across parts of Central, Tayside and Fife, Grampian, Highlands and Eilean Siar, SW Scotland Lothian Borders, Strathclyde and North East England from 3pm on Wednesday until 10am on Thursday.

A second yellow warning is in force from 8am to 9pm on Wednesday.

The warning advises of heavy snow which will impact parts of the warning areas and warns of a possible 30cm across the highest areas.

The following regions will likely see areas impacted: Central, Tayside and Fife, East Midlands, Grampian, Highlands and Eilean Siar, North East England, North West England, SW Scotland Lothian Borders, Strathclyde and Yorkshire and Humber.

Is it going to snow in London?

The first two weeks have been incredibly cold in London, but there has been little in the way of snow.

However, forecasts show a period of milder snow is forecast for the next two weeks with a smattering of snow in the coming days.

The Netweather snow risk map reveals a high chance of snowfall from Thursday at 9pm.
