THE forecast has changed again to suggest Oxford could wake up to snow on Friday morning. 

The Met Office now says there is a 90 per cent chance of heavy snow in the early hours of Friday, with 'feels like' temperatures as low as -6 tomorrow morning and the potential for freezing fog.

Lighter snow flurries are expected to start from about 8pm tomorrow evening, although forecasts are ever-changing. 

The Oxfordshire Weather Watch Facebook page, which posts about the county's forecasts, posted earlier today: "We really do have a great snow chance [on] Thursday night. Could bring us a couple of cm." 

A yellow warning for ice and fog will be in place from 10pm tonight until 11am tomorrow, and another yellow warning for snow and ice will be enforced from 1pm tomorrow until late on Friday.

The yellow warning, which covers all of Oxfordshire and much of the country, cautions pedestrians, road users and rail and air passengers about icy surfaces. 

Oxford Mail:

It adds: "There is a slight chance that some rural communities could become cut off... There is a small chance that power cuts will occur and other services, such as mobile phone coverage, may be affected."

There was snow across the county last week, but it did not settle for long.
