Weather warning: Snow forecast in Yorkshire and the Humber

Heavy Snow UK

The Met Office has issued a weather warning for snow and ice in the Yorkshire and the Humber region over the next five days.

The Met Office issued a yellow ‘be aware’ warning, alerting residents of a deep depression passing close to the north of Scotland pulling cold air across the northern parts of the UK.

Frequent showers of sleet or snow are expected to fall in many parts.

A spokesperson said: “The colder air will extend further south during Tuesday with snow falling to progressively lower levels across northern England.

“On Tuesday night a more organised area of showery precipitation is likely to affect Scotland, which has the potential to produce several centimetres of snow at low levels, including the Central Belt, though details of this are rather uncertain at present. Ice is also likely to be a hazard again on Tuesday night.”

The warning will be reviewed and updated tomorrow on Tuesday.
