Storm Nelson is battering the UK with heavy rain and winds of up to 70 mph in parts of England on Thursday and in Devon heavy snow has fallen.

Residents in Devon woke up to heavy snow falling including Dartmoor National Park and Exmoor in north Devon.

The Met Office are predicting that there will be heavy rain to hit Devon and London which will see wind speed of up to 50 mph.

The Met Office are warning, “Gusts of 50mph are expected quite widely, while some exposed coastal spots may experience gusts of 60 to 70 mph, with large waves also likely.

“The strong winds will be accompanied by heavy, squally showers with the possibility of hail and thunder in some locations.

“Hail won’t fall everywhere but where it does it can quickly make road surfaces slippery, while surface water and spray are likely to worsen travel conditions rather more widely.

“Strong winds and large coastal waves may lead to hazardous conditions.”
