The Met Office has warned that snow is possible in the New Forest today as the cold weather continues.

Throughout the morning residents can expect temperatures ranging from 1 to 2 degrees Celsius, dropping to as low as -4 overnight.

But this will feel more like -2 in the day and -6 at night once wind chill is taken into account.

The day will be mostly cloudy, with a 10 per cent chance of sleet, but with clear skies overnight and sunny spells tomorrow morning.

A spokesperson for the Met Office said snow was possible for the south: “On the cloudy side in places at first, especially in the south with some isolated sleet or snow is possible across southern counties.

“Turning drier later, with cloud slowly clearing eastwards, but staying cloudy.”
