The Met Office had previously put out a yellow warning for snow, but this has now been upgraded to amber for most of the region for between 9pm tonight and 5am tomorrow.

Mr Burkill added: "Once that clears out, we will return to frequent showers pushing in from the north west through Thursday and Friday".

The Met Office says the risk of snowfall on Wednesday night is greatest across Tyrone, Londonderry and Antrim where further significant and disruptive accumulations are likely.

Bradford is on the fringes of the area affected by the warning, which runs from 6pm on Wednesday to 6am on Thursday, and so may miss out on the worst of the weather.

A police statement said: "If you do travel, you will experience delays of several hours or more".

The strongest winds are expected to transfer eastwards across the warning area before clearing by early afternoon.

The warning, which is already in place, warns that the showers already falling in the north of England are set to spread south over Wales, the Midlands and southern England through the night.

Disruption and cancellations are also expected to rail and air travel, with some rural communities at risk of becoming cut off and left without power.

"As ice and snow thaws there is of course other issues we have to look out for, that could be more ice, but the possibility of flooding too".

Last night traffic bosses closed parts of the motorway in both directions last night due to heavy snow showers - with cars tailing back for six miles in some places.

On higher ground (above 100m) then two to six cm of snow is forecast.

The snow will have died out by Thursday morning, but the county will remain on yellow alert as high winds blow across Yorkshire.

Some sleet is expected, but if it snows, only a small amount is likely to fall - according to the Met Office.

Very strong winds will affect parts of the United Kingdom during Wednesday (January 17) night and into Thursday.

"The location of the most damaging winds is now uncertain, although parts of northern and eastern England along with southern Scotland now look more at risk".

The windy, wintry weather will ease through the morning as the storm moves away into the North Sea, but not before lashing eastern coasts with damaging gusts and battering waves.

Police Scotland is now advising motorists to drive with "extreme caution" in the areas affected by the wintry conditions.
