The Met Office has issued a Yellow Alert for snow this weekend. It's in place from the early hours of Sunday through to Monday night.
There is a risk that a band of rain moving in from the south-west on Sunday could turn to snow as it hits the colder air in our region. We could potentially see 10 cm of snow.
**Any brightness will disappear as cloud spreads eastwards and we'll see outbreaks of rain and sleet. Temperatures will be on a par with yesterday at 4 or 5c and a light wind.
TONIGHTIt will remain very cloudy tonight but mostly dry. The lighter winds mean there will be a few mist patches. Temperatures will be freezing or below so it will be icy where we've seen the rain today and expect a frost too.
SATURDAYIt will be an icy start tomorrow but with some brightness first thing before more cloud rolls in giving us a grey Saturday! Through the morning we will begin to see some outbreaks of rain and sleet. On higher ground especially in the Peak District there will be snow flurries and a risk even at lowers levels especially in eastern areas that we could see a couple of cm of snow.
It will be cooler than today at 3 or 4c.
If you are off out tomorrow night you'll need your big, warm coat as it will be freezing cold and the rain and sleet will continue on and off through the night.
SUNDAY**Sunday is snow day. We are keeping a close eye on a band of rain moving in from the south-west. As it crashes into the colder air in our region it will first turn to sleet but has the potential to then turn to snow. The main action will be through daylight hours.
We are likely to see more snow, although it will be lighter and more showery on Monday.
