A new cold weather warning has been issued covering Preston and Lancashire.

The Met Office is warning of ice as well as heavy showers of hail, sleet and snow into Friday late morning.

Running from 11am on Thursday (14 December) to 11am on Friday (15 December) the cold, showery, weather is to continue.

The chief forecaster states: “Cold, showery weather remains across the UK for the rest of the week. Ice will be the most widespread hazard, especially overnight and particularly on untreated surfaces, or where heavy showers wash grit or salt off roads. Most of the snow accumulations will occur above 150 m where 2-6 cm is likely in places.

“However, 1-2 cm is possible at low levels very locally where heavier wintry showers occur.”
