THIS video shows how weather experts predict snow will fall across Hampshire.

According to the Met Office graphic (above), the snow will come from the south west, making its way up through Dorset and into the county around 7pm.

It comes as the Met Office upgraded their snow warning from yellow to amber for parts of Hampshire and Dorset.

Areas in the west of the county, including the New Forest, are included in the amber warning area.

Southampton and the rest of the county is covered by a yellow warning.

Both warnings are in place from 1pm today until late Friday.

Ahead of the newest warning, Hampshire County Council has announced it is working "round the clock" to ensure the area's roads are prepared.

Councillor Rob Humby, Executive Member for Environment and Transport at Hampshire County Council, said: “Our winter fleet is salting the main roads continuously.

"We are doing everything we can to prepare for snow, but, if the forecast is correct, we are certainly going to have our work cut out.

"Rain is forecast from this afternoon, which will then turn to snow.

"This means that salt already on the roads may be washed away, and our winter fleet will have to start salting again as soon as the rain eases ahead of the freeze.

"We have 43 salting lorries and each route takes about three hours to complete.

Hampshire Chronicle:

"We would ask everyone who travels on Hampshire’s roads to think about their travel arrangements, be prepared for bad weather and either try to avoid travelling where practical or to plan their journeys carefully if they need to be out and about tomorrow evening.

Last year, Hampshire was blanketed by snow after a combination of cold weather patterns combined over the county.

Ice-cold Siberian winds, known as the Beast from the East, buffeted the county, turning a storm from the south into a heavy layer of snow.

The unusual weather pattern caused traffic chaos across Hampshire and a long list of school closures.
