An area of more organised showers will move south across northern England during Wednesday evening. The showers will fall as sleet, snow and hail on high ground, before turning to rain within a few hours. Temporary accumulations of 2-5 cm of snow are possible within 2-3 hours above 300-400 metres.

The public should be aware of the possibility of difficult driving conditions and some minor travel disruption on higher Pennine routes.

Chief Forecasters Assessment

An occlusion will bring a band of more organised showers south across many parts of northern England during Wednesday evening. The air will be cold enough for snow to fall over high ground, although less cold air will quickly follow from the northeast, such that snow will turn to rain with any lying snow melting.
