The UK Met Office is predicting a minimum temperature of 1°C for the region on Wednesday night.

A Road Service spokesperson said: "Salting of roads on the scheduled network considered to be at risk will be undertaken but motorists are advised to exercise caution when travelling, particularly when driving on untreated roads."

Last week, the seasonal gritting service was launched by Transport Minister Danny Kennedy.

Across Northern Ireland, over 300 staff and more than 130 grit trucks will be on standby nightly until mid-April to deal with sleet and snowfall on the region's roads.
