A new snow and ice warning has been issued for Preston and Lancashire.Advertisement
Following the snow fall on Tuesday (6 February) the Met Office is now predicting we will see another dusting.
The yellow weather warning – the lowest warning level – is in force from 10pm on Thursday (8 February) until lunchtime on Friday (9 February).
The chief forecaster states: “Rain, sleet and hill snow is expected to clear northwestern Scotland late on Thursday evening, and these clearer conditions will spread to all parts by early Friday morning. Ice is expected to form as skies clear.
“Heavy snow showers will follow, and these will be most frequent across Northern Ireland and western Scotland, where 2-5 cm may accumulate above 100 m with some snow to low levels too. Ice will be the main hazard across Northern England and Wales.”
