Snow could hit the region earlier than expected after the Met Office brought forward its weather warning.
The initial yellow weather warning was in place from 9pm tonight until midday on Wednesday, but the Met Office has now brought the warning forward to 5pm.
The Met Office said: “The start time of the warning has been brought forward to cater for some snowfall during peak travel times on Tuesday evening.”
A band of rain pushing east across is likely to turn to snow during Tuesday evening, and will continue into Wednesday.
Forecasters say accumulations of 1-3cm are possible, with snowfall of 5cm in places.
