THE latest forecasts show that more snow is due to fall in Worcestershire this evening.

It is expected to start with light flurries but become heavier with a mix of sleet and snow.

The Met Office has issued an amber warning for snow, meaning be prepared.

In preperation, the county council's fleet of gritters have already been out from 10am this morning on the county's secondary routes and will react throughout as conditions develop. 

Motorists are once again being urged to drive with caution and temper their driving according to the conditions.

Despite roads looking clear the extreme freezing temperatures means there's still a significant risk of ice.

Jon Fraser, county council highways customer and community manager, said: "Although we expect things to warm up this weekend, today's snow is likely to cause some disruption on the roads. 

"The gritting teams have already been out to get ahead before the snow starts. 

"We're urging drivers to continue to take care, temper their speed and leave extra space between themselves and the vehicle in front to help reduce the risk of accidents."
