A severe weather warning has been issued for snow on Wednesday morning, and drivers in the the North West are being urged to plan their journeys.
A yellow warning for snow will be in place between 3am and 12 noon on Wednesday. Cumbria and Lancashire are considered to be at greatest risk, but Highways England say drivers should take care on all high level routes in the region.
Snow fall is predicted between 2-5cm at elevations over 150m, with up to 10cm on the ground above 300m causing travel disruption throughout the morning rush hour period, and giving rise to increased journey times. Sleet and snow accumulations could also occur at lower levels.
“Gritters are out treating our routes, but it is still important to drive to the conditions when snow is forecast.
Keep your distance and reduce your speed, because even in conditions that seem normal, and the snow is not settling, it can be slippery in patches where ice patches have formed, or where fresh grit has not been worked into the carriageway.
Drivers should plan their journeys, monitor weather reports and pack a snow kit of blankets, food, water and a shovel.”
