The latest forecast suggests that Wirral will see sleet or snow showers at 7am on Thursday morning when temperatures will be at the coldest.

The Met Office said: “Wintry showers are expected to continue through Wednesday night into Thursday morning, especially over Northern Ireland and western Scotland, before developing more widely across parts of northern England, the north Midlands and north Wales later in the night.

“This will leave surfaces wet, leading to icy stretches developing on untreated surfaces. Showers will fall as a mixture of hail, sleet and snow.

“Some places are likely to see 1-3 cm of snow, mainly above 100 m, with 5-10 cm possible above 400 m.”
