The Met Office said there could be light snow and sleet in the early hours of Friday.

It has issued a yellow ‘be aware’ warning and drivers have been told to expect disruption.

The Met Office said: “A weather system will cross to the south of Yorkshire early on Friday. This will bring rain to many areas but snow is likely over some of the higher ground, such as the Pennines and Southern Uplands, and rain may turn to snow at lower levels before it clears eastwards.

“The snow may be heavy in places, possibly giving 2-5cm at low levels and maybe 10cm or more above around 200 m.

“Following clearance, there is also the risk of widespread ice on untreated surfaces in time for the morning rush hour.”
