The Met Office today issued a yellow weather alert for the region, warning that heavy rain and snow could make driving difficult.

It is urging people to be aware of the possibility of very poor conditions and disruption to travel this afternoon and into the evening.

An area of rain is moving across the UK from the south, falling as snow above 250 metres.

The Met Office says the public should be aware of the potential for very poor conditions and disruption to travel due to snow as well as temporary blizzard conditions over the higher routes, due to strong winds accompanying the weather system.
