The Met Office has issued a Yellow Warning for snow for large parts of West Yorkshire.

Temperatures will plummet this week and rain will turn readily to snow even at low levels from Wednesday.

The Met Office warning states: “Rain will turn to snow in places.

“This could bring accumulations of 4 to 8 cm across some hilly areas of northern England and Scotland, largely above 200-300 m, with as much as 15 cm possible above 300-400 m.

“Overnight Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning, as snow peters out over Scotland, there is the potential for snow to settle to low levels over parts of Yorkshire and down into the northeast Midlands, though with a good deal of uncertainty about this.

“Please be aware of the risk of difficult driving conditions in some areas.”
