Yellow warning of snow and ice affecting North West England
Written by John Williamson on 28/01/2019
A band of rain will arrive across northern England through the middle of Tuesday, then move eastwards through Tuesday afternoon and evening.
The rain will turn quickly to snow on hills, then also to low levels in places.
3 to 5 cm snow is likely above 200 metres, with up to 10 cm in a few places. A patchy covering of 1 to 2 cm is possible at low levels, although some places will see no snow at all.
As skies clear overnight, ice is likely to form on some surfaces.
In addition, wintry showers will follow into western areas on Wednesday morning, giving further slight accumulations of snow in a few places.
