The Met Office has issued another yellow weather warning for snow and ice in the northern parts of the UK and Scotland for tomorrow.

Snowfall is predicted in Greater Manchester, Yorkshire, Cumbria, Merseyside, Lancashire and Scotland on Thursday between 10am and 4pm followed by sub-zero temperatures.

Met Office spokesman Grahame Madge said, “As we go into the overnight period temperatures will start to drop and in some of the sheltered glens in Scotland we could see -10C or even colder temperatures recorded.

“Across the UK there is not going to be many places that will remain above freezing.

“Tomorrow (Thursday) we will start to get this weather front coming in from the west. We are going to see that moisture-laden air coming in, bumping into this cold air and whenever you get that you tend to get transient snow.

“It’s likely to last for one or two hours.”

The Met Office forecasts milder weather conditions as we head into the weekend.

Madge added, “Friday into Saturday we have got another frontal system moving across the UK. That’s more likely to deliver rain more widely.

“By Saturday and into the weekend any wintry showers are likely to be just over the higher tops and fells.”
