WEATHER WARNING: Snow and ice forecast from Friday, heaviest on Sunday

Heavy snowfall is headed to Bradford on Sunday, the Met Office has warned as it extended its weather warning for snow and ice through the whole weekend.

The organisation had already issued a yellow warning for snow and ice in Bradford and parts of West Yorkshire on Friday.

But now it says there is an 80% chance of heavy snow in Bradford around 1am on Friday, and a 90% likelihood heavy snow on Sunday falling from noon until at least 9pm, with temperatures only reaching 1°C.

A spokesman said: “This could lead to road, rail and air travel delays, with the potential for vehicles to become stranded or public transport to be cancelled. Rural communities with limited access routes could become cut off.”
