Also on Thursday, another yellow alert has been issued in parts of northern England for heavy rainfall.
The Met Office warns the flooding of homes and business in the affected area – which includes much of the north west of England, plus Staffordshire, Stoke on Trent and Derbyshire – is likely.
The alert said: “Rain will arrive across northwest England on Wednesday evening and turn heavy overnight into Thursday.
“During this time 20 to 30mm is likely to fall quite widely across the area, with as much as 50 to 60mm possible over the hills.
“Some of this may fall as snow over the higher parts of the Pennines. Overnight into Friday, the rainfall will become much lighter and more patchy in nature as the rain band pushes southeast.”
