Fresh snow warning for Cumbria

A warning of snow has been updated to include Cumbria.

The latest information from the Met Office says a band of rain, sleet and snow is expected to spread across Scotland and northern England tomorrow morning.

However, most towns and villages will not be affected, with the majority of snow expected on ground above 200m – five to 10cm are expected.

A spokesman for the weather forecaster continued: “There is also a risk of some wet snow to low levels, giving transient slushy deposits of up to 2cm.

“Clearer weather with wintry showers will follow from the west later in the morning, but not reaching the far northeast until later in the day.”

Motorists are warned to drive with caution and be aware of potentially difficult driving conditions.
