The warning is in effect from 4am until 11.55pm on Sunday 10 December 2017

The Met Office says that a spell of heavy snow is possible over some central parts of the UK during Sunday.

This could lead to road, rail and air travel delays, with the potential for vehicles to become stranded or public transport to be cancelled.

Rural communities with limited access routes could become cut off.

"A band of rain, heavy at times, is expected to move eastwards over the UK.

"With cold air in place, a spell of snow looks likely to develop on its northern edge.

"1-5 cm is possible quite widely, and up to 10 cm in places. Over higher ground, 20 cm is possible in a few places.

"There is currently a good deal of uncertainty over the precise track of the areas of rain and snow."
