Traffic is slow moving on the M62 eastbound between J24, A629 (Ainley Top) and J27, M621 (Gildersome).
There are currently no disruptions to public transport.
We can expect a reprieve from high temperatures today with a much cloudier day overall, and feeling noticeably cooler at 19C.
Early hill and coastal fog, with a little drizzle, will slowly lift to allow bright or sunny intervals to develop.
Tonight will be dry with a few clear spells during the evening and night, and it will also feel somewhat fresher than it has done on recent nights.
But the sunshine is expected to return tomorrow with temperatures reaching 22C and even higher going into the weekend.
