The warning says: “Showers are expected across the northwest of the UK from Wednesday evening onwards, these falling as sleet and snow even to low levels at times away from exposed coasts.
“Some accumulations of snow are expected, mostly above around 150m where more than 2cm is likely in places.”
The warning says that there could be travel disruption, adding that some roads and railways are likely to be affected with longer journey times by road, bus and train.
There might also be injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces and “probably some icy patches on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths”.
