The Chief Forecaster’s assesment read: “The cold, showery weather will finally begin to lose its grip as we move into the weekend.

“However before this happens there is scope for some ice affecting areas where wintry showers continue to fall, or where there is existing partly melted snow cover.”

The warning said: “Ice will be a hazard in places on Friday evening and Saturday morning.

“The extent of hazards looks like being somewhat lower than preceding days, but where wintry showers fall, or there is still patchy snowcover, icy stretches are likely on untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths.”

Other parts of the UK, including the North-East of England and Northern Ireland, will also be affected by the wintry conditions.
