A second weather warning for snow and ice is also in place for Sheffield from 3pm on Thursday (31 Jan) until 12pm on Friday (1 Feb).

The Met Office said: “A band of rain will arrive across Wales, northern and western England through the middle of Tuesday, then move eastwards through Tuesday afternoon and evening.

“The rain will turn quickly to snow on hills, then also to low levels in places. 3 to 5 cm snow is likely above 200 metres, with up to 10 cm in a few places.

“As skies clear overnight, ice is likely to form on some surfaces. In addition, wintry showers will follow into western areas on Wednesday morning, giving further slight accumulations of snow in a few places.”

The Met Office add that “Overnight Thursday into early Friday ice may also become a hazard on any untreated surfaces as temperatures fall below freezing.”
