Icy stretches could form on many untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths this evening, overnight and into Friday morning, the Met Office warn.

A forecaster at the Met Office has said: “As the more persistent rain clears on Thursday afternoon and evening, temperatures will fall quickly and untreated surfaces will freeze, with ice forming, especially in areas with snow cover.

“Further showers spreading from the west could cause salt wash-off and give further accumulations of snow in places, chiefly on high ground over Scotland”.

The warning for ICE is in place throughout Thursday night until 9am Friday morning.
