While a large chunk of the north has been warned of heavy snow and blizzards this weekend by the Met Office, the current forecast in Warrington is for sleet.

If you get up early enough, there's a chance of light snow on Saturday from 8am but it will feel like -3 degrees.

From 9 to 11am on Saturday the forecast is for sleet with the temperature dropping to -4.
