(Updated 1:28pm 11th January 2017)
Lancashire's set to shiver and we're being urged to plan our journey's.
A number of Met Office warnings are in place across the country.
In Lancashire overnight we can expect xcattered, blustery showers, with some snow, mainly over high ground.
Sleet and snow showers will continue on Thursday and Friday with some occasional sunny intervals.
We'll have continued travel news and school closure news should we get any HERE
The latest statement from the Met Office is as follows;
Northwesterly winds will bring occasional snow showers throughout Thursday, though these may clear from southern parts of Wales for a time.
There is the potential for disruption to transport networks with longer journey times. Icy stretches on roads and pavements are also possible.
Lancashire's gritters are gearing up to keep the county moving over the next couple of days
County Councillor John Fillis, cabinet member for highways and transport, said:
"This change in the weather seems likely to keep our gritting teams very busy and we're well prepared to deal with whatever the weather brings over the next few days.
"Our highway teams will be out gritting but drivers should take extra care as when a road has been gritted, it can remain icy until the movement of traffic has worked the salt in and made it take effect, so it's vital to drive according to the conditions and consider that there could be icy patches."
Lancashire County Council has a fleet of 58 frontline gritters which can treat the approximately 1,800 miles of the county council's priority road network within around four hours, but may take longer in severe conditions.
