The Met Office has issued a snow warning for North West England for Friday and Saturday this week.

The warning says that snow is very likely, although Cumbria is more likely to be affected than Lancashire at this point.

This follows periods of high winds and heavy rain causing flooding in the Preston area.

The warning extends from 4pm on Friday until 10am on Saturday.

The chief forecaster said: “A major (but temporary) change of weather type will see the winds swing into a more northerly direction, pulling down much colder air across the whole of Britain and western Europe, after what has been an exceptionally mild first half of November.

“Wintry showers will spread to many northern areas in particular and night frosts will become much more widespread.”

More updates as we get them.
