Met Office forecasts snow for Rotherham
Snow has been forecast on Friday

AFTER a flurry of the white stuff this morning, Rotherham could be in for up to 10cm of snow on Friday.

The Met Office has issued a yellow ‘be aware’ warning, which said snow was likely between 3am and noon on Friday.

A spokesman said: “A band of rain, heavy at times, is expected to move eastwards over the UK.

“With cold air in place, a spell of snow looks likely to develop on its eastern edge.

“Above around 100m, 2 to 5cm is possible quite widely, and up to 10cm over higher ground.

“Some places to the east of the Pennines may see some accumulating snow to lower levels.”
