It warned there could be heavy rain during Saturday, which could lead to flooding in some areas.

The Met Office said: “Rain, heavy at times, looks likely to develop early on Saturday and persist until later in the day.

“Given saturated ground, some localised flooding is possible as well as disruption to travel.

“Impacts look like being low for the most part but given existing problems in parts of Lancashire and Cumbria, some isolated medium impacts are possible.”

The Met Office warned snowfall could affect higher parts of the region.

It said: “Snow is likely to fall to around 200m at times with small accumulations likely, but with greater accumulations above around 400 m where over 10 cm is possible. Some snow is briefly possible to low levels in the heaviest precipitation.

“Please be aware of the potential for disruption from flooding or from snow during Saturday.”
