Forecasters have warned of further snow across the Wakefield district today (Wednesday) and overnight.

The Met Office said snow is expected to continue throughout Wednesday afternoon and has issued another yellow ‘be aware’ warning.

It also warned motorists to expect disruption as snow leads to icy surfaces tonight.

A warning for snow was originally put in place until noon today, but this has now been extended until noon tomorrow.

The Met Office said: “Outbreaks of sleet and snow, especially over higher ground, will slowly die out through Wednesday afternoon and evening but will leave the hazard of icy surfaces on Wednesday night.”
