THE Met Office has issued a severe weather warning of snow and ice for parts of Lancashire tonight.

Residents have been warned of difficult driving conditions and the potential for travel disruption on Wednesday morning.


The Met Office warned: “A cold front will move east and south across the United Kingdom through Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.

"This will introduce significantly colder air with frequent showers, these turning readily to sleet and snow even at low levels.

"One to four centimetres is expected in some areas by dawn Wednesday with up to 10 cm in places. These higher accumulations are more likely over higher ground above 200m but may also occur to low levels where showers are heavy and prolonged.

"This is perhaps most likely across parts of Lancashire, Manchester and the Peak District."
