Have your say

After a windy start to Wednesday with occasional blustery showers, it should become drier for most places by afternoon with sunny spells and winds easing.

It should be dry at first, tonight, but thickening cloud and outbreaks of rain soon spreading from the southwest.

The rain will be heavy at times, and perhaps turn to snow later on hills.

The M62 is busy eastbound between J25, A644 (Brighouse) and J27, M621 (Gildersome). Matrix sign set to 60 mph.
