The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for snow which covers the majority of North and Central England. It is in place from 3am Thursday (February 8) until 3am Friday (February 9).
It warns that there is a chance of delays on the roads and further delays than usual to public transport. The warning also states there is uncertainty about where the rain and snow boundary will be and how far north the snow will extend.

A spokesperson for the Met Office said: “A band of rain, sleet, and increasingly snow, will push north on Thursday bringing up to 2cm snow at lower-levels, 2-5cm on ground above 200m, and perhaps as much as 10-20cm above 400m.
“The snow will ease later in the day, and may turn back to rain or drizzle, especially in the south and east of the area. There is some uncertainty with respect to the rain/snow boundary, and the northern limit of the snow, and so details may change in the coming days as confidence increases in these aspects.”
