A forecaster at the Met Office has said: “A standard showery northwesterly airstream, followed by a fairly widespread frost away from windward coasts, means an ice risk to start the day on Wednesday.

“In most areas the breeze should lead to drying out of surfaces, but late showers, or water seeping from fields, increases the likelihood of local problems”.
