Snow is forecast for parts of South Yorkshire tonight, but Sheffield is expected to miss out

The Met Office has forecast some snow in places around Yorkshire and Humber tonight.

But it might be too soon to dust off your sleigh, as the white stuff looks set to give Sheffield a miss, and any snowfall that happens elsewhere is predicted to quickly turn to rain.

The Met Office expects a sunny but cold Saturday in the area, with a brisk breeze and a maximum temperature of 4C during the day.
