As it happened – Snow in York and North Yorkshire, 14 January 2021
Two more weather warnings in place
The Met Office have two more weather warnings for our area.
Tomorrow (Friday) there’s a yellow warning of ice from 8am to 10am.
Forecasters say “rain, sleet and snow will die out, leaving a risk of icy surfaces and difficult travel conditions”.
And on Saturday there’s a yellow warning for snow and ice from 3am to 9pm, covering a large chunk of Scotland and northern England.
“A band of heavy snow may lead to travel disruption,” the Met Office says.
More warnings from police
It’s still bad out there. Stay at home if you can say police.

More transport problems. A combination of the snow and heavy traffic has brought the normally fast and frequent CityZap bus service between York and Leeds to a halt for the time being.
They will update us when things change.
