While an amber weather warning is in place for much of the rest of the UK, as well as flood warnings, there also remains the possibility of more snow in London.

In its forecast for Thursday March 9 to Monday March 13, the Met Office says snow is possible at first in London and southeast England, but then we can expect it to be wet and windy.

Thursday March 9

It is already cold and wet, with icy patches, and the Met office says occasionally heavy rain spreading northeastwards may turn to sleet or snow for a time.

It will become warmer but windier through the afternoon, with rain showers developing and a maximum temperature of 6 °C.

In the evening there will be widespread showers and a risk of sleet or snow in the north later in the night, especially for higher ground, as outbreaks of heavy rain move south.

We can expect a minimum temperature of -1 °C.

Friday March 10

Friday will be cold but with rain, sleet or snow easing.

There may even be sunny spells, as well as isolated snow showers through the afternoon.

There may then be widespread frost and ice overnight.

The maximum temperature is expected to be 7°C.

Saturday to Monday (March 11-13)

On Saturday, widespread frost and ice is possible at first. It will be bright by day but there will be rain and occasionally heavy rain overnight.

Sunday should be dry and bright, but then it is expected to be wet and windy overnight and through Monday.
