An amber warning for snow has been issued for northern England and is expected to remain in place until 11am, with a yellow warning issued for southern and eastern Scotland and the Midlands.

There is a 90% probability of severe cold weather/icy conditions/heavy snow between 0800 on Wednesday 27 Dec and 0900 on Saturday 30 Dec in parts of England. "Some delays and cancellations to rail and air travel are likely", the Met Office warned.

"Snow is expected to settle mainly above 100m with a cm or two for most, locally 2-5cm and perhaps up to 10cm in a few places".

The warning is in place between 3am and 3pm tomorrow, with temperatures expected to continue being low.

But from tonight, a band of freezing rain is expected to turn into snow as it sweeps across the United Kingdom from the south west.

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

Highways England also gave out a severe weather warning and urged people to plan their journeys, monitor weather reports and pack a snow kit of blankets, food, water and a shovel if they travel.

Although the more persistent heavy rain is now clearing east, with some brighter spells moving in from the west, it will turn increasingly windy across the south, with some squally heavy showers accompanied by hail, thunder and strong, perhaps damaging wind gusts, spreading east across southern counties of England and Wales through the day.
