The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for snow across Yorkshire and the Humber.

Rain is set to turn to snow overnight tomorrow and into Wednesday morning.

This could bring snowfall of up to 8cm across some hilly areas of northern England, and there is the potential for snow to settle to low levels over parts of Yorkshire, according to the Met Office.

A yellow weather warning is issued when severe weather is possible over the next few days and could affect people in the concerned area. It means people should plan ahead thinking about possible travel delays, or the disruption of day-to-day activities.

Britain will wake up to "frosty scenes" tomorrow, says Emma Sharples, forecaster for the Met Office.

"A lot of places will go below freezing, even towns and cities will probably be just about hovering between 0C (32F) and 1C (34F)," she said.

Going into Wednesday, parts of the North East and Yorkshire may also see snow as a band of rain collides with the cold air, she added.

But the freezing weather is not set to last, with wet and windy weather forecast for Friday and Saturday and temperatures between 10C (50F) and 14C (57F).

"We will see a slight change as we go towards the end of the week," Ms Sharples said.

"Less cold than it is at the moment, but probably still a little bit below average for the time of the year."
