This weather warning is in place from 12pm today (1 Feb) until 12pm tomorrow (2 Feb), covering East and North Yorkshire.

The Met Office said: “Snow showers over northern Scotland and eastern England will also start to affect parts of western UK during Friday evening and night.

“Meanwhile, over northern Scotland showers will merge into longer periods of snow and here accumulations of 2-5 cm are possible with 5-10 cm perhaps falling over higher routes.

“Away from northern Scotland, snow accumulations will be much smaller and patchier in nature, but 2-4 cm are possible in a few places above 100 metres, perhaps most especially the North Yorkshire moors.

“With temperatures also falling below freezing Friday late afternoon and evening, there will be some icy stretches, especially on untreated surfaces.”

What to expect from this weather warning

Snow showers and icy stretches may cause some travel disruption.

-Some roads and railways likely to be affected with longer journey times by road, bus and train services

-Some injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces

-Probably some ice on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths
