A WEATHER warning for snow has been issued for Barnsley.

The Met Office issued the alert on Friday morning and it remains in place until 12pm on Saturday.

A spokesperson said: "Showers will feed into most of northern England during Friday and at least the first part of Saturday. Some of these will be heavy with a mixture of hail, sleet and snow.

"Snow accumulations are likely to mount up on hills, with around 10 to 15cm for some areas above 300m. Smaller accumulations are also expected to lower levels at times, with localised falls of 2 to 6cm.

"Ice will be an additional hazard on untreated surfaces. The public should be aware of the risk of disruption to travel."
