A YELLOW weather warning for snow has been issued by the Met Office for the Leigh area.

Showers are expected to turn to snow on Tuesday afternoon, even down to low levels, and will continue through into Wednesday morning.

The forecaster added: “Accumulations of 2-5cm are likely on ground above about 150-200m with perhaps 10cm or more above 300m especially in the west of Scotland, Northern Ireland and northern England.

“On low ground, lying snow will tend to melt between showers by day but 1-3cm may settle on Tuesday evening and night. Icy stretches will also reform in the evening, these lasting well into Wednesday morning.

“The public should be aware of the risk of some travel disruption and difficult driving conditions.”
