A SEVERE weather warning has been issued for the South West with some areas likely to see up to 10cm of snow by tomorrow morning.

The Met office issued the amber warning this morning and is predicting outbreaks of sleet and snow across the region until around 9am tomorrow morning.

Where rain or sleet is already falling it will turn to snow during the afternoon or evening, even at low levels.

Some areas, particularly higher ground, could experience up to 10cm while others will see between two and five and this may fall heavily within a short period of time.
