Weather warnings have been issued for Exmouth, with heavy snow expected this afternoon.

The warnings from the Met Office have been changing from yellow to amber to red in the Devon region.

In Exmouth, the Met Office is predicting temperatures at -2 degrees C with gusty winds and light snow at around 1pm, with the temperature staying much the same and increasingly heavier snow as the afternoon progresses.

The temperature is likely to lift overnight (possibly 2 degrees C), with snow showers turning to sleet, but with the wind chill factor making it feel very cold.

Although so far the town centre has escaped reasonably lightly – with only light snow that fell earlier this morning (Thursday, March 1) – pavements and side roads could become more difficult when more snow arrives, particularly if the current snow freezes.

Brixington – which is on higher ground than the town centre and the temperature is noticeably lower there – had a heavier snowfall this morning, but side roads were still passable.

The best advice is to stay at home if at all possible, and do not travel unless absolutely essential.
