WEATHER ALERT: heavy snow forecast for Bradford

The Met Office has issued an early warning of heavy snow for Bradford.

Weathermen say the district will be hit by a blanket of snow on Friday - with the worst of the conditions set to wreak havoc during the rush hour.

Forecasters say snow is due to fall from 6am on Friday morning with the heaviest falls from 9am until lunchtime.

Temperatures will hover around freezing for most of the day.

A Met Office spokesman said: "A band of rain, heavy at times, is expected to move eastwards over the UK [on Friday].


"With cold air in place, a spell of snow looks likely to develop on its eastern edge. Above around 100 metres, 2-5 cm is possible quite widely, and up to 10 cm over higher ground. Some places to the east of the Pennines may see some accumulating snow to lower levels."

So far the region has avoided the worst of the snow fall that has brought Christmas chaos to roads further south.

However, in other parts of the country thousands of homes were left without power as wintry weather swept in overnight.

The southbound carriageway of the M1 near Lutterworth in Leicestershire was closed after an accident involving a lorry, with Highways England reporting "severe conditions" on the A14 near Kettering, while another HGV jack-knifed in heavy snow on the M5 in Gloucestershire.
