THE Met Office has issued a yellow warning for snow for a large part of Craven, with showers expected over hills and mountains into the evening and overnight up until 9am tomorrow (Friday).

Skipton is not included in the warning, but much of the area, from Embsay and including Grassington, Settle and into the national park, Malham and Kettlewell, are expected to have further snow falls of up to 5cm on high ground.

The Met Office says: "Further spells of snow are expected over hills and mountains today before snow turns more widespread for a time this evening and overnight.

"Snow will then fade, turning to rain for some, later in the night and on Friday morning. Today, a further 2-5 cm is possible above 300 to 400 m. Tonight, snow may briefly settle across areas as low as 150 m above sea level before the snow level rises as milder air arrives from the east. 2 to 5 cm of snow is then possible above 150 m, with transient sleet or snow at lower elevations. Steadily increasing amounts are likely at higher levels; perhaps as much as 5-10 cm above 400 m. The bulk of tonight's snow will tend to be over the Pennines."

Kettlewell Hostel tweeted this morning: "At an altitude of 220m Kettlewell gets to see snow a little before most places! It is always good to get back home to @thekettlewell #hostel and get the boots into the drying room ready for tomorrow."
