KNUTSFORDIANS should brace themselves for heavy snow showers tomorrow after forecasters predicted up to 15cm could land on the town. 

A forecaster for MeteoGroup, said 10-15cm is predicted to fall over the north west with as much as 25cm set to cover the hills.

Travel disruption is expected and motorists have been warned to prepare their cars if travel is essential. 

The North West Ambulance Service is also asking Knutsford residents to take care.

Derek Cartwright, acting director of operations at NWAS, said: “Severe weather has a huge impact on the Service as we, like all other road users, have to negotiate the hazardous driving conditions.

"There is always an increase in the number of road traffic collisions and falls and therefore I ask that the public only take necessary journeys.

"If you do need to travel, make sure you are prepared for extended journey times.”
