The Met Office have issued a Yellow alert for ice and snow in Lancashire on Thursday evening and overnight into Friday in the Northwest.
The Met Office warns that: "Wintry showers later on Thursday and overnight into Friday will lead to some ice, primarily on untreated surfaces but perhaps also where grit is washed off by frequent showers.
"Additionally, 1-3 cm of snow may accumulate on hills above around 100-200m and more than 6 cm above 400m.
"Some of the heaviest showers could produce slushy conditions even at low levels. Please be aware of possible tricky travel conditions."
