Forecasters are warning an additional 10cm of snow could fall across the region today.

A forecaster at the Exeter-based Met Office said: "Further outbreaks of sleet or snow will affect parts of Wales and southwest England through today.

"A further 2-5 cm is likely in places with perhaps as much as 10 cm over high ground.

"The public should be aware that this may lead to localised disruption to transport."

An ice weather warning has also been issued for the majority of Devon tomorrow.

The warning is in place until at least 11am.

A Met Office forecaster said: As temperatures fall on Wednesday night, icy stretches will again form on many untreated surfaces especially where new snow has fallen on Wednesday or lying snow refreezes.

“There may also be a few light snow flurries in places though any new accumulations will be slight.

“It will be another very cold night with locally severe frost (this more likely in the north and east of the yellow area) and a continuing chance of light showers of rain, sleet or snow feeding inland off the sea onto eastern and some southern coasts.”

Rain weather warnings have been issued for the whole of Devon and Cornwall on Friday and Sunday.

Forecasters say a combination of rain and snow melt could lead to localised minor surface water and river flooding.

Summary of weather warnings in place for North Devon:

- Snow weather warning in place until 9pm tonight

- Ice weather warning in place until 11am on Thursday

- Rain weather warnings issued for Friday and Sunday
