A weather warning has been issued for Scarborough.

The Met Office has put the area on alert as cold weather is set to roll in during Monday.

As part of its ‘yellow’ warning it said: “Further heavy, wintry showers are expected overnight Monday and into Tuesday.

“Snow will fall to low levels in places in Scotland and Northern Ireland, with localised accumulations of 1 to 3 cm, while snow-cover will be more widespread over hills here, with around 4-8 cm possible above around 200m, especially in the west. Wales and northern areas of England will see snow chiefly over higher ground, with more than 5 cm in places but with some accumulations possible at low levels too.

“Ice will be an additional hazard across much of northern Britain.

“The public are advised to be aware of tricky travel conditions generally, and possible disruption to transport.”
