The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for ice in Lancashire.

The warning is valid overnight on Monday and is expected to lead to difficult driving conditions and slippery pavements.

The chief forecaster for the Met Office said: “Showers will affect many parts of the UK during Monday, with some continuing overnight and into Tuesday morning, when temperatures will also fall below zero in some areas, bringing a risk of ice.

“The showers will fall as rain, sleet and hail at low levels, but as snow over hills, where several centimetres of snow may accumulate.”

The warning follows similar weather on Thursday night in the aftermath of Storm Doris.

The high winds Preston saw last week resulted in travel disruption on the railway and to some roads in the area.
