“As this band moves south-westwards, ice will also readily form on untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths. Some roads and railways are likely to be affected with longer journey times by road, bus and train services.

“Some injuries are also possible from slips and falls on icy surfaces.

“Following the clearance of an area of rain and snow, ice will form on untreated surfaces Friday evening and persist into Saturday morning.

“Despite a cold day then on Saturday surface temperatures are expected to rise above freezing during the morning allowing ice to melt.”
