After motorists battled with snowy conditions this morning, the Met Office has issued a warning for ice this evening.
The yellow “Be aware” alert will be in place from 6pm tonight and 10am tomorrow morning.
The Met Office said: “Expect some icy patches to form on untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths on Thursday evening and overnight into Friday. There is a risk of slippery surfaces and difficult driving conditions. Snow showers are expected, mainly over higher ground in the north and west of Scotland, with longer journey times possible.”
The chief forecaster’s assessment reads: “Showers across northern and western Scotland are expected to bring further snowfall with 1-2 cm possible to low levels, and 2-5 cm above around 200 m. Across Northern Ireland and northern England, snow will be confined to higher routes, but icy patches are likely where showers leave surfaces wet.”
