Sunday's Amber weather warning for Greater Manchester has been downgraded to Yellow, despite a heavy flurry of unexpected snow for many this morning.
Until around 6pm this evening, 2-5cm of snow is expected to fall, before easing off until around 8am on Sunday morning.
Snow showers are then expected to persist until around 4pm on Sunday - with the warning still sitting at Yellow.
While the Met Office predicts this could still have an impact on travel both on the roads and trains, they have said the heaviest and most frequent snow showers will be confined to northeast Scotland today. But the Yellow warning remains in place for Greater Manchester for the whole of Sunday. The Yellow warning reads: "A spell of snow is expected on Sunday."Within the warning area, 1-5 cm of snow is possible quite widely with up to 10 cm in places. Over higher ground, 20 cm is possible in a few places.
The snowfall should continue throughout the weekend, with a 'tricky band' pushing up from the south-west which is likely to lead to more persistent showers tomorrow.
It should be brighter and a little warmer on Monday and Tuesday, according to forecasts.
