Forecasters are predicting 5-10cms of snow for the Royal Borough this evening.
A front is coming in from the west which will clash with freezing temperatures bringing snow showers to most places today and tomorrow.
Steve Randall, a Met Office forecaster, said: “There will be snow for a time, possible 5-10cm, and once that clears there is the risk of ice and black ice on untreated roads.
“There is also the chance of some freezing fog in places tomorrow so it’s going to get pretty nasty.”
Temperatures across the UK have plummeted in recent days and gritting lorries have been out in force across the borough to keep motorists on the move.
Paul Gundersen, Deputy Chief Forecaster at the Met Office, added: “With this risk of snow and ice over the next few days it is important people stay up to date with our weather forecasts and warnings for the latest information.”
