A yellow warning of snow has been issued for the region on Friday.

NORTH Devon could see snow this week as the Met Office predicts a spell of the white stuff is possible on Friday.

A yellow warning of snow is predicted across North Devon from 9am on Friday until 11.55pm.

A spokesman for the Met Office said: “As the weather breaks down, there is the potential for a spell of snow to spread from the southwest.

“As winds strengthen, blizzard conditions are a possibility, especially over high ground.

“Accumulations of 2-5 cm are possible quite widely and in some locations, especially higher ground, 15 cm are possible.”

Motorists are urged to take care when travelling due to possible disruptions and ice on the road.
