Preston has a yellow weather warning for snow showers in force from the Met Office throughout Saturday.

Weather warnings have now been added for Sunday (18 March) and Monday (19 March).

The warning states: “Snow showers are likely to continue throughout Sunday, with an increased chance that longer spells of snow will affect some areas.

For Monday’s warning of ice, which lasts until 10am, it states: “After a very cold day on Sunday, temperatures are likely to fall well below freezing across much of the area into the start of Monday. This will lead to any partly melted snow refreezing.”

Temperatures are set to barely get above freezing on Sunday and Monday, despite some sunny spells.
