Met Office updates snow weather warning to include Merseyside

Rain will turn to snow in some places later on Tuesday and into Wednesday morning.

The Met Office warn that although most of the snow will fall across hilly areas, some could filter down to lower levels.

Merseyside has just about been included in the newly issued warnings, so for areas such as Wirral and Liverpool there’s more of a chance of rain and sleet rather than snow.

A forecaster at the Met Office said: “A band of rain spreading slowly in will turn to snow as it encounters cold air.

“Whilst this will be mainly on high ground, and heavier bursts could easily bring snow down to low levels.

“Overnight into Wednesday morning, there are concerns that heavier bursts could bring snow more widely down to low levels over parts of the Midlands and northern England, though at this stage there is still low confidence”.

The warnings are in place overnight until 10am on Wednesday and temperatures will average around 10C.
