Preston could see a sprinkling of snow during Tuesday and Wednesday as the cold snap continues.

The Met Office has put Lancashire on a snow alert as it says up to four to eight centimetres could fall on hilly areas of Northern England.

Motorists are being warned of difficult driving conditions in some areas from 12noon on Tuesday (8 November).

The chief forecaster states: “A band of rain spreading slowly in will turn to snow as it encounters cold air. Whilst this will be mainly on high ground, and heavier bursts could easily bring snow down to low levels.

“Overnight into Wednesday morning, there are concerns that heavier bursts could bring snow more widely down to low levels over parts of eastern England, though at this stage there is low confidence.”

The yellow warning for snow, the lowest level of warning, is in plan from 12noon on Tuesday to 9am on Wednesday (9 November). The warning comes as the Met Office said the next three months are due to be very chilly.
