Heavy snow and blizzard warning for Yorkshire

People across Yorkshire and northern Lincolnshire have been warned of heavy snow, with possible blizzards on higher ground.

A Met Office amber warning has been issued for Friday evening.

More than 10cm (4in) could fall on higher ground in the north, with between 5-10cm (2-4in) in other areas.

A yellow warning of heavy rain has been issued for Sunday, which the Met Office said combined with snow melt could lead to localised flooding.

BBC weather forecaster Paul Hudson, said: "There is going to be quite a lot of snow coming from the west and it is expected to reach the east coast by the early evening."
