A weather warning is in place across the Yorkshire and Humber region today as heavy rain and snow is forecast.

The Met Office issued a yellow warning with rain, heavy at times, likely to develop early on Saturday and persist until later in the day.

Given saturated ground, some localised flooding is possible as well as disruption to travel.

Snowfall will also affect some higher routes.

Snow is likely to fall to around 200 m at times with small accumulations likely, but with greater accumulations above around 400 m where over 10 cm is possible.

Some snow is briefly possible to low levels in the heaviest precipitation.

Please be aware of the potential for disruption from flooding or from snow during Saturday.
