The Met Office has warned that Preston could see snow over the coming days.Advertisement
The forecast states that temperatures are expected to drop overnight resulting in a mix of hail, frost and snow.
Steve Ramsdale, chief meteorologist at the Met Office said: “As well as a noticeable change in temperatures on Monday, the cold air will also bring wintry showers to many parts as it filters southwards across the UK.”
Forecasters have not yet issued a severe weather warning because they don’t expect the snow to settle as temperatures remain above average for April during the day.

However, it is possible that will change as the week progresses.
Preston saw a similar weather warning issued towards the end of April 2016 when it was forecast that between 2-10cm of snow could fall.
