A YELLOW weather warning has been issued by the Met Office with snow predicted through Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning.

The warning means Halton residents should 'be aware'.

The forecaster added: "Showers will turn increasingly to snow on Tuesday, even down to low levels, and will continue through Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning.

"Accumulations of 2-5 cm are likely on ground above about 150-200 m with perhaps 10 cm or more above 300 m especially in the west of Scotland, Northern Ireland and northern England.

"On low ground, lying snow will tend to melt between showers by day but 1-3 cm may settle on Tuesday evening and night.

"Icy stretches will also reform in the evening, these lasting well into Wednesday morning.

"The public should be aware of the risk of some travel disruption and difficult driving conditions."
