South Yorkshire is being warned to prepare for snow and ice after the Met Office issued a yellow warning in the region.

Temperatures are expected to dip to just above freezing tonight, with light snow forecast to fall for around two hours from midnight.

The yellow warning - which means that people should be aware of severe weather - is valid from 6pm this evening until 11am tomorrow morning.

A Met Office spokesman said: “Local snow accumulations of 1-3cm are possible above around 100m.

“The public should be aware of the potential for disruption to travel.”

Tomorrow, there are set to be early icy stretches on untreated surfaces.

There will be sunny or bright intervals and snow showers - some of which could be heavy and lead to slight accumulations.

It will feel very cold, with temperatures not getting above 4C.
