WIGANERS are being warned to brace themselves for a night of foul weather.

Snow is already making its way north up the country and is expected to fall heavily in Wigan overnight.

Motorway police began to warn people at 4.30pm to drive carefully on M6 nearby as the roads started becoming dangerous.

Temperatures are expected to plummet overnight but could stay mild enough to ensure conditions aren’t too bad.

But motorists are being warned to be extra careful in case of a possible freeze.
