Weather alert.

The Met Office has issued a weather warning for Yorkshire and the Humber today.

A mixture of rain, sleet and snow will gradually spread eastwards overnight and during Monday morning.

The precipitation will be mostly light but may lead to the odd cm of snow accumulating in places, particularly over higher ground.

However the main hazard looks like being ice, as the precipitation falls onto sub-zero surfaces.

Drivers are urged to take extra care on the roads.
