Weather: Overnight into Wednesday

Steel Cormorants at Morecambe Bay by JOHN ERIC HUGHES of Lancaster

Overnight

Cloudy and cold with patchy frost and ice. Many places dry but snow showers will develop in the east.

The Met Office has a warning for between 3-5cm snow possible over hills (more so for eastern slopes).

This will make Trans-Pennine routes difficult if not impassable during the early hours of Wednesday.

Wednesday

A cold and wintry start, especially over The Pennines. A few snow showers will have filtered further west but should be light and well scattered.

The rest of the day is drier but remaining cold, highs 4/5C. A breezier day. Cloudy skies for most areas with occasional brightness.
