Snow hits parts of Dorset and Hampshire – with a weather warning in place

SNOW has hit parts of Dorset and Hampshire – causing problems on the roads.

A weather warning for snow and ice is in place for much of the county, with people reporting snow settling in some areas.

The warning is in place until 4pm today (Thursday).

The Met Office said “wintry weather” could affect some areas, leading to “hazardous conditions in a few places”.

They warned people to expect some roads and railways to be affected, as well as icy patches on untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths.

“There is a risk of some icy stretches, and some snow falling over hills and moors,” a Met Office forecaster said.

“Rather breezy too, especially around coasts, where it will feel particularly chilly.”

Temperatures would reach around 5C, they added.

Overnight, the forecaster said it would remain largely cloudy, turning cold and frosty under clear skies “with the odd spot of mist and fog around”.

Temperatures are expected to drop to 0C.

And on Friday, they warned of an early-morning frost.

“A cold end to the week, with frost and possibly some icy stretches to start,” the forecaster added. “Then dry with plenty of sunshine once any early-morning fog clears.”

Temperatures would again reach just 5C on Friday.
