A YELLOW weather warning for snow and ice is STILL in force for Bolton and the rest of Greater Manchester - but when is the snow expected to hit?

According to the latest forecasts, snow is expected to hit the town from 8am, just in time for the main rush hour traffic, until 11am this morning (Tuesday) before making way for a mixture of rain and snow throughout much of the day.

Very slow traffic and traffic heavier than normal is already being reported on the M66 Southbound from A56, Ramsbottom junction, to J2 A58 Rochdale Road in Bury. The situation is being hampered by due to the weather conditions.

Forecasters say there is a 50-60% chance snow could return overnight and into Wednesday making for another grim commute tomorrow if it sticks. 

There is also a 30% chance of snow on Thursday but a pretty low chance of the white stuff at the weekend.
