The chief forecaster's assessment said: "A band of rain, heavy at times, is expected to move eastwards over the UK.

With cold air in place, a spell of snow looks likely to develop on its eastern edge.

Above around 100 metres, 2-5cm is possible quite widely, and up to 10cm over higher ground.

Some places to the east of the Pennines may see some accumulating snow to lower levels."

A Yellow warning means that severe weather is possible and could affect you.

According to Met Office advice, you should plan ahead, think about potential travel delays or disruptions.
