The UK Met Office issued the yellow ‘Be Aware’ warning which begins on Saturday at 7pm, and lasts right through to Sunday morning at 10am.

Sub-zero temperatures are predicted in places, leading to the risk of ice on untreated surfaces.

“Further showers will also occur until the early hours of Sunday, which could lead to localised wash-off where roads have been treated,” the Met Office Chief Forecaster predicted.

The public are advised to take extra care and be aware of the potential for some disruption to travel.

The Roads Service added that salting of roads on the scheduled network considered to be at risk of ice or frost is planned for Saturday evening.

“Showers are forecast to continue overnight and there is the risk of some wash-off of salt. Road users are advised to exercise extreme caution when travelling.”
