TEMPERATURES are set to plummet to -6C this week but Oxfordshire may be spared more snow, forecasters have warned this afternoon.

Charles Powell, Met Office forecaster, said this morning’s snow should be the last flurry Oxfordshire sees this week.

Earlier forecasters said Oxfordshire could be in for three more days of snow.

Daily temperatures this week are expected to reach no more than 4C in the county.

Oxfordshire County Council spokesman Owen Morton said gritters will continue to be out and about as the cold snap continues.
