SNOW could be set to hit Worcestershire this weekend.

THE Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for tomorrow morning (Saturday, November 27), cautioning snow could fall anytime from midnight to 10am.

The warning effects large parts of the West Midlands including Evesham and the edge of Worcester.

While most areas will see spells of rain, there is a ‘small chance’ of this turning to snow on Saturday morning, which experts say could lead to some disruption.

The Met Office has warned there is a chance of travel delays on roads with some stranded vehicles and passengers, along with delayed or cancelled rail and air travel.

There is also a slight chance some rural communities could become cut off, while other services, such as mobile phone coverage, may be affected.

Meanwhile, an existing weather warning remains in place across the county as Storm Arwen is set to bring strong winds and cold weather to the UK.

According to the Met Office, the stormy weather will last from Friday through Saturday.

A spokesman also said disruption to travel and infrastructure is likely.

They said: "Storm Arwen has been named and is forecast to bring a period of very strong winds and cold weather to the UK from Friday into Saturday.

"Disruption to travel and infrastructure is likely over the coming days with warnings in force."

Yesterday, Malvern’s Christmas lights switch-on was cancelled as councillors feared gale force winds.

Other outdoor events at the Christmas Festival were also temporarily axed as a precaution.


As it stands, the Christmas lights switch-on in Worcester is still set to go ahead, despite fears over severe weather.

The city council confirmed they were continuing to monitor the weather and would make a decision as and when it would be needed ahead of Saturday's event (November 27).

A Worcester City Council spokesman said: "We are closely monitoring the weather forecasts and will, of course, be putting people’s safety first.

"We will make any decisions on the day, as and when they need to be made."

The Worcester Christmas Lights Switch-on gets underway at 2pm, with the main event taking place at 6pm.
