A WEATHER warning of snow has been issued for Southampton and Hampshire this weekend.

The Met Office has issued the warning for all of Sunday and is warning residents to be aware.

A warning is only in place for Winchester on Saturday but it does not extent as far west as Southampton.

Snow is now forecast to fall from 5pm on Saturday until 9am on Sunday, and temperatures are expected to drop below freezing with a high of 2C.

A statement says: "Snow showers are likely throughout Sunday, and where these converge some snow may well accumulate and could then prove disruptive.

"There is a small chance of travel delays on roads with some stranded vehicles, along with delayed or cancelled rail and air travel. "There is a small chance that power cuts will occur and services, such as mobile phone, may be affected."

The warning comes two weeks after snow caused travel chaos across the city.
