An area rain over northern England and southern Scotland this afternoon will bring some heavy bursts.
This will fall as snow at times, mainly on higher ground and more so during Wednesday afternoon and evening, with accumulations of 2-4 cm possible above 200 m with up to 8 cm above 300 m.
Around 10-20 mm of rain is expected to fall quite widely across the area, and some parts could see 30 mm or so.
The heavy showers over northern England could give very locally 20 mm of rain in 2 to 3 hours.
As this rain clears southeastwards clearer conditions will spread in from the northwest with a few icy patches possible in places.
