MORE snow is predicted in the county over the next few days, with a yellow weather warning now in place for snow.

Parts of the county are set to see frequent snow showers and potential travel disruption as heavy snow is forecast for areas of the county.

The Met office previously issued a warning for ice in the area but have since issued a yellow weather warning for snow across parts of the county.

The warning now includes areas of Rossendale, Burnley and Ribble Valley, with the warning in place until 11.59pm on Wednesday (February 10).

Some areas will see 2-5cm of snowfall, with 10-15 cm also possible in the worst affected regions.

A spokesperson for the Met office said: "Some icy stretches are possible overnight, mainly where melting snow during the afternoon has not a chance to dry out before freezing overnight, although snow is likely to be more prevalent.

"Snow showers will feed off the North Sea into many northern and eastern areas of the UK.

"Whilst some areas in the warning area will remain largely dry, some persistent bands of showers are likely to develop in places."

The bad weather could lead to disruption on roads and railways and there could be icy patches on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths.

There is a slight chance that some rural communities could become cut off and a small chance that power cuts will occur and other services, such as mobile phone coverage, may be affected.
