Forecasters are predicting snow for Friday and Saturday

SNOW could cause disruption to travel this weekend, with forecasters issuing a weather warning.

The Met Office said up to 5cm of snow was likely “fairly widely” across Yorkshire, with up 20cm of snow in highest parts of the borough.

A yellow ‘be aware’ warning has been issued and is valid from 12.05am on Friday until 6pm on Saturday.

A spokesman said: “During Friday, increasingly frequent snow showers already affecting parts of Scotland, Northern Ireland and northern England will extend across many other northern and western parts of the UK.

“2 to 5 cm of snow is likely fairly widely, with 10 to 20 cm in places, mainly northern Scotland, Northern Ireland, north Wales and perhaps the northwest Midlands. Icy surfaces are also likely to be an additional hazard, especially overnight.”
