Met Office issues Mersesyide a severe weather warning for ICE, as roads and pavements could freeze


The Met Office has placed Merseyside on a yellow severe weather warning, as dipping temperatures during clear any skies could freeze pavements and roads from any rainfall.

The weather warning is in place overnight until 11am on Friday as icy stretches are likely on untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths with some slippery surfaces likely.

The Met Office say: “Cold, showery weather remains across the UK for the rest of the week.

“Ice will be the most widespread hazard, especially overnight and particularly on untreated surfaces, or where heavy showers wash grit or salt off roads.

“Most of the snow accumulations will occur above 150 m where 2-6 cm is likely in places. However, 1-2 cm is possible at low levels very locally where heavier wintry showers occur”.

Although a weather warning for ice is in place, by the weekend temperatures are expected to recover back into double figures, making the weather feel much milder.
