Warmer weather returns to the North West

Warmer weather will return to the UK, including the North West, today after Wednesday's snow is replaced by rain.

Snow has hit much of the country, but it will quickly be followed by rain.

That will pave the way for much milder temperatures today, forecasters said.

The mercury could rise as high as 9C (48F) in the North West.
