Rain and snow make way for frost and ice overnight

Photo:

Rain turning to snow over hills during Saturday. The Met Office have a weather warning in place until 8pm for 2-6cm of snowfall, possibly more over higher pennine routes above 400m.

A clearer but colder night ahead as rain and snow move south, with most areas at freezing or below. This will lead to a widespread frost and the risk of ice. The Met Office have a warning in place until 10am

Here's the detail for the rest of the weekend......

SATURDAY:

A band of rain, preceded by snow, moving northeastwards across the area. Some snow accumulations over the Pennines. During the afternoon the rain and snow will slowly ease southwards with most parts becoming dry by evening. Highs struggling with 2-4°C at best.

SATURDAY NIGHT:

Skies clearing as any remaining showers die out. Winds dropping out light allowing a sharp frost to form in many places. Lows down to -4°C with the risk of some isolated freezing fog patches.

SUNDAY:

After a dry, bright but frosty morning cloud will slowly thicken from the southwest as another band of rain or sleet reaches the area during the afternoon and evening. The rain will not be as extensive or as wintry as Saturday, but may turn to sleet and snow over hills for a time. Highs 3-4°C at best.
