A band of rain, sleet, and increasingly snow, will push north on Thursday (February 8) bringing up to 2cm snow at lower-levels, 2-5cm on ground above 200m, and perhaps as much as 15-25cm above 400m, along with a risk of some icy conditions, according to the Met Office.

The snow will ease later in the day, and may turn back to rain or drizzle, especially in the south and east of the East Midlands region.

Snowy, wintry weather can cause delays and make driving conditions dangerous, so drivers are advised to keep themselves and others safe by planning routes, checking for delays and road closures, and amending travel plans if necessary.

When a weather warning is issued, the Met Office recommends staying up to date with the weather forecast in your area.
