The Met Office has issued Merseyside ANOTHER weather warning for ICE during Monday morning.

For most of this week the region has been placed on weather warnings for snow and ICE as polar air grips the region.

Weather fronts have been clashing with the freezing air, brining a mix of snow, sleet and hail.

The freezing weather is expected to continue into the new week and any overnight rain could freeze during Monday morning, the Met Office warn.

Temperatures could dip below freezing in places and with gusty winds, the weather will feel closer to -3C at times,  meaning a risk of ICE on any untreated surfaces.

The yellow weather warning for ICE is in place from 5pm on Sunday to 10am on Monday.

A forecaster at the Met Office said: “The cold conditions with a mixture of clear spells and wintry showers will continue through Sunday night and Monday morning.

“This will result in temperatures falling rapidly on Sunday evening and icy patches developing on untreated surfaces, especially where any wintry showers lead to wash off of previous treatment.

“Any heavier snow showers may lead to temporary accumulations of 1 cm or less at low levels whilst over higher ground, above approximately 200 m, as much as 2 to 5 cm may accumulate in a few places”.
