“Icy patches are likely to form this evening and overnight, especially where showers occur,” a Met Office forecaster said.

“Clear spells this evening and overnight will allow temperatures to widely fall below freezing allowing icy patches to form, especially on untreated surfaces such as pavements, cycle paths and some minor roads. ]

“Further showers will also occur which could lead to localised wash-off where roads have been treated.”
