The Met Office has warned there could be heavy snow in Bucks overnight on Tuesday. 

The yellow alert comes just days after snow caused chaos across the county last week - bringing the roads and public transport grinding to a halt. 


The latest warning, which covers much of the country including Reading, London, Oxfordshire and Slough, is in place from around 9pm on Tuesday until 12pm on Wednesday. 

It warns that: 

  • There is a small chance of travel delays on roads with some stranded vehicles and passengers, along with delayed or cancelled rail and air travel
  • There is a slight chance that some rural communities could become cut off
  • There is a small chance that power cuts will occur and other services, such as mobile phone coverage, may be affected

Thee weather service says a band of rain pushing east across parts of England is likely to turn to snow during Tuesday evening, with snow continuing into Wednesday.

Accumulations of 1-3 cm are likely quite widely, with accumulations of 5 cm in places.

There is a small chance that some areas could see up to 10 cm, more especially over the higher ground.
