A SNOW warning for the Isle of Wight has been issued by the Met Office.

The 'be aware' warning is in force from 8pm on Sunday to 9pm on Monday.

The Met Office said: "A spell of sleet and snow is expected, starting on Sunday evening in south west England, and affecting southern England more widely on Sunday night and Monday morning. Snow will be accompanied by a strong easterly wind which will accentuate the very cold feel. 

"Accumulations of 3-5 cm could occur quite widely over southern counties, and the public are advised to be aware of this wintry hazard."

The Met Office is forecasting a low of 4C during the day on Sunday, feeling like -1. The temperature is forecast to drop overnight, falling to 0C early Monday morning. The strong north-easterly winds will make this feel like -8C.
