The snow is expected to give way to rain later today.

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for the north west, including Cumbria.

A Met Office statement says: "Sleet and snow will continue to spread eastwards across many northern and central parts of the UK during today.

"Accumulations of two to four centimetres of snow could occur temporarily at lower elevations, with around 10 cm above 200 metres across northern England and Scotland, where drifting is possible in the strong winds."

It warns that rain is likely to fall on sub-zero roads leading to a risk of ice.
