Snow warnings remain in place across Gloucestershire

A MET Office warning for snow remains in place across Gloucestershire this morning.

There is some snow falling in Winchcombe with sleet expected in other parts of the county. 

Temperatures are unlikely to rise much above freezing and because of wind chill it will actually feel more like -2C.

Visibility is going to be poor this morning with some fog expected but things will clear this afternoon. 

The snow warnings are predicted to be lifted at midday but heavy cloud will remain.  

Meanwhile, utility company bosses are offering advice to people who are the victims of frozen or burst pipes.

Freezing weather can wreak havoc on plumbing and in a bid to prepare people for the worst, water company Severn Trent has issued some 'How to' videos to help in an emergency. 

The videos can be viewed at stwater.co.uk/snow. 

Severn Trent has stressed that it is only responsible for the water pipe in the street and footpath up to the boundary of a customer's property. 

Anything inside the property is the responsibility of the homeowner.
