A YELLOW weather warning for snow and ice has been issued for Worcestershire.

The Met Office has issued a weather warning for Worcestershire and Gloucestershire today (Saturday), which includes Worcester, Malvern, Evesham and the Cotswolds.

The adverse weather is expected to lead to disruption to transport and infrastructure.

Some roads and railways are likely to be affected by the weather, with longer journey times by road, bus and train services.

A spokesperson for the Met Office said: "Rain will turn to snow at times this morning.

"Not everywhere will see snow, and it may not settle on roads in some places.

"However, a few spots could see 1 to 3 cm accumulate.

"From mid-morning, any snow should turn to rain or die out, with lying snow thawing rapidly."

The weather warning is in place until 10am.

National Highways has also warned of snow flurries across this morning.

A spokesperson said: "Please allow extra time this morning if you're travelling in the region as there's been a flurry of snow across our network.

"Be reminded that gritting doesn't prevent snow from settling on the road. 

"A yellow Met Office snow warning is in place until 10am."
