Manchester and the south of the region look likely to miss out on any overnight snow. However, a gloomy and in places showery morning will greet other areas on Friday morning.

The most widespread snowfall is set to be at around 4am. If it settles, this could lead to some wintry scenes during the morning commute. To check out the outlook on the map, visit the Met Office website.
