A yellow weather warning has been put over Preston and South Ribble for tomorrow.

The Met Office has issued the warning for icy conditions on Thursday (7 January) from 5pm to 11pm.

They believe icy stretches are likely to form in places leading to slippery conditions and potential for disruption to travel.

Residents are being warned of injuries from slips and falls on the ice and of ice patches that may appear on roads and untreated paths.

“In addition, a more persistent spell of rain and hill snow is likely to spread south across northern England.

“Some snowfall is possible, accumulations are likely to be slight and temporary.”
