There were no fresh warnings for commuters travelling home this evening in the north-east but icy conditions are expected from tomorrow morning.
It is expected to be a cold night with temperatures down to freezing in Aberdeen and even lower in rural areas.
A spokesman for the bus company First Group Aberdeen said that today has been the best day of the week so far on the roads.
The area has been given a yellow warning of ice by the Met Office setting in tomorrow morning at 10am.
The wintry showers set to fall overnight mean ice is likely to form over frozen surfaces.
Philip McKay, Head of Roads and Landscape Services for Aberdeenshire Council said: “Showers are forecast during the evening which could turn in to sleet, leading to the possibility of roads refreezing on already treated surfaces.
“We would advise motorists to take care and always drive to the conditions. ”
Aberdeenshire council will send gritters onto priority routes tonight and tomorrow morning.
Saturday is expected to see temperatures of 3-4 C in Aberdeen and slightly less in rural areas. Snow which sets will be confined to higher regions.
