MORE snow is expected during rush hour today (Friday) but the end of the wintry weather could finally be in sight.
The Met Office has issued an amber warning for the West Midlands region which is expected between 3pm and 6pm, although it is expected to be heaviest in the north and east of the region.
Light snow showers are expected in the Redditch area turning to sleet and then rain by late evening. Saturday is expected to be mainly dry with rain forecast for Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.
Gritters from Worcestershire County Council have been out since 10am this morning on the county's secondary gritting routes and will react throughout the afternoon as conditions develop.
Motorists are being urged to drive with caution even on gritted roads.
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."
