SNOW has fallen in Cumbria and the Met Office has issued a weather warning.

Forecasts predict that up to 10cm of snow will fall through the early hours of tomorrow, with 2-4cm expected lower down.

The Met Office said: "A depression on Thursday evening will bring cold air in its wake, causing showery outbreaks of rain to turn to snow, principally on hills but also to low levels at times."

The yellow-level warning is in place from midnight to 10am tomorrow.

Across Cumbria, pictures have been posted online as the snow begins to fall.

The warning for snow comes a week after Cumbria was officially the hottest place in the country.

The highest temperature in Cumbria on April 21 was 19.7C at Levens Hall, near Kendal.
