Snow is forecast for London this Wednesday (February 4), with the public warned to expect travel disruptions.

Experts at the Met Office issued a yellow weather warning on Monday, saying heavy snow showers driven by strong north-easterly winds were possible throughout Wednesday.

They predicted 1-3cm of snow was likely in Greater London, and other inland parts of south-east England, with up to 10cm on the cards for higher ground further north.

The cold spell is expected to continue in the capital throughout this week, with highs of 5C and lows of -1C, but no further snow flurries are forecast for Thursday or Friday.

Should snow materialise this week, west Londoners could try to emulate the snowman building skills displayed here beside Hammersmith Bridge in January 2013.

In December, getwestlondon revealed which west London councils had cut their budgets for clearing snow and ice this winter.
