Already this weekend, the region has been hit by storm Arwen, which has caused lots of disruption to roads, train lines and has left hundreds of homes without power as power cables have been taken out.

The strong winds partially tore down an old industrial building in Bristol and tore the roof off some apartments in North Petherton, Somerset.

‘Snowstorms’ were reported in the Cotswolds when sudden snowstorms appeared. Flags were also seen in Bristol, Bath and Cheltenham.

The Met Office has said there is a small chance of more snow in the south of England later today.

In their forecast for the south-west today, they report: “Most areas see some sunshine at times, but some snow for a period over parts of Scotland and north-west England this morning and parts of the Midlands and south of England this afternoon.

“Winter showers in the east. Feels cold.”
