The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for ice in Bury until midday tomorrow (Monday).

The warning came in at 5pm today (Sunday) after many residents woke up to a dusting of snow this morning.

The Met Office stated that modest thaw of recent snowfall will lead to wet roads and pavements which will lead to some icy patches.

It added: “As well as this, later in the night rain will push north across much of the area, initially falling on to frozen surfaces.

“Some snow is also likely, mainly across the hills and mountains of north Wales and The Peak District.

“Snow may fall to lower levels for a time tomorrow morning, especially across parts of Wales adding to the risk of ice.”

They recommend that people plan their journeys ahead of time and keep up to date with the forecast to reduce the risk of accidents.

Met Office Chief Meteorologist, Jason Kelly, said: “The first Atlantic airmass for a while is making some inroads across southern and central parts of the country bringing less cold conditions to many southern areas, whilst the cold airmass continues to hold on in the north.

“Where these two airmasses meet is the focus for continuing ice risk.

“Warnings may well be updated over the coming days so keep up to date with the forecast in your area.”
