Heavy snow is set to plague Derbyshire well into next week, the Met Office have said.

A series of new weather warnings have been issued this morning (Friday), with snow and ice expected from tomorrow through until Tuesday at the least.

After a slightly milder day today, temperatures will plunge on Saturday, with the Arctic blast then showing no sign of abating.

Forecasters say heavy snow showers late on Saturday could lead to an extra covering of the white stuff.

Sunday and Monday will also see more snow showers, and these could be heavy and lead to further accumulations.

And there will be no let up on Tuesday, with the Met Office issuing an early Yellow warning for snow.

The Chief Forecaster said: “During Tuesday, a subtle change in wind direction will allow showers to spread further inland, with snow showers possibly falling quite widely across northern England (east of the Pennines), along with the Midlands and parts of southeast England.

“The airmass is sufficiently cold for snow showers to accumulate at low-levels and some locally heavy falls are possible.”
