LIVE: Snow expected to hit Stoke-on-Trent and North Staffordshire overnight



Forecasters are predicting more snow and ice in Stoke-on-Trent and North Staffordshire overnight.

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for snow and ice, which is in force until midnight tomorrow (January 8).

The weather warning will see more snow fall in the city and surrounding areas.

The current forecast predicts sleet showers from midnight, but snow is then expected to start falling from 6am.

The weather warning states: “Showers, a mixture of rain sleet and snow, are expected to fall onto frozen surfaces leading to icy stretches forming.

“In addition, a more persistent spell of rain and hill snow is likely to spread south across northern England and north Wales during Thursday evening and night.

“Whilst ice is expected to be the main hazard, snow is likely in place too. Snow is most likely to fall over The Pennines, North York Moors and the high ground of Wales, with 1-3 cm possible here.

“Elsewhere, whilst some snowfall is possible, accumulations are likely to be slight and temporary.”
