FORECASTERS have warned of ice on the roads overnight on Wednesday and Thursday morning, as freezing temperatures sweep in from Europe.

The Met Office has issued a yellow ‘be aware’ warning for ice, which is valid from 7pm tonight (Wednesday) until 10am on Thursday.

It comes as temperatures are expected to plummet for the rest of the week, with snow showers possible on Friday and Saturday.

The Met Office said: “There is a chance of locally difficult driving conditions on untreated roads and slippery conditions on pavements and cycle paths are also possible.

“Temperatures will drop below freezing during Wednesday evening or night, especially inland, leading to a risk of ice on untreated surfaces.

“In addition, sleet and snow showers will be running in from the North Sea, potentially causing localised wash-off where roads have been treated.”
