Snow warning for Rotherham
Rotherham could wake up to a covering snow on Saturday morning

FORECASTERS have warned of further snow which could cause disruption to travel overnight on Friday and into Saturday.

Rotherham woke up to a dusting this morning with light wintry showers throughout the day. 

The Met Office has now issued a yellow ‘be aware’ warning for snow, with showers expected to turn more persistent overnight.

It said up to 6 cm of snow could fall on high ground, with accumulations also possible at low levels.

Its chief forecaster said: “Slippery conditions are likely, along with the risk of disruption to transport, especially on higher level routes.

“Snow showers driven in on a strong, cold north-easterly wind will line up in places to give accumulations, especially during Friday evening and night. 

“During Saturday morning, a gradual warming trend will turn things more to rain, though snow will continue on hills.”
