Don’t panic, but it might snow in Leeds this week

We could see 4-8cm

The Met Office has issued a Yellow Warning this morning for snow in large parts of Yorkshire – including Leeds.

With winter now well underway, students have been reaching for thick coats and woolly hats with temperatures plummeting in recent weeks: and now it looks like we may be set to see some snow.

The Met Office says rain will turn to snow in places later on Tuesday and into Wednesday morning, and we could be seeing between 4-8cm of snow.

Whilst the snow is likely to be heaviest in hillier parts of northern England and Scotland, the Met Office says: “As snow peters out over Scotland, there is the potential for snow to settle to low levels over parts of Yorkshire.”

They go on to warn drivers of the potentially hazardous conditions and to take care in the wintry weather.
