A cold and cloudy morning to start.

Mostly dry but with a few light, wintry showers initially.

Winds strengthening with rain arriving from the west through the afternoon, falling as snow over the Pennines at first.

Rain should clear during the evening but then further showers overnight.

Showers turning increasingly wintry at low levels before clearing leaving a risk of icy patches.

Traffic is queueing on the A644 eastbound between Brighouse and the A62 Cooper Road junction.

A replacement bus service is running on Northern Rail between Hebden Bridge and Burnley Manchester Road due to engineering works.
