The previous ice warning remained in force until 11am this morning, with forecasters warning that there will probably be icy stretches on untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths.

Another yellow warning for ice has now been issued by the Met Office for the east from 4pm today until 11am tomorrow.

The Met Office said: “Ice will again form on some surfaces from late Wednesday afternoon, which will continue through the night and well into Thursday morning.

“There will probably be icy stretches on untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths with some slippery surfaces likely.”

Chris Bell, Weatherquest forecasting director, said that there is unlikely to be any further heavy snowfall over the next few days.

He said: “There could be a wintry mix of showers over the next few days but there is not going to be any widespread snow such as we have seen.

“Looking ahead to the weekend, Saturday looks like being a dry day and Sunday will be largely dry - we could see some rain into the evening.

“It will still feel quite chilly though, with temperatures of around three or four degrees on Saturday and four or five on Sunday.”

Mr Bell said at this stage, a white Christmas looks unlikely for the region.

“At the moment, it’s looking more like a green Christmas than a white Christmas,” he said.

“It’s still subject to change but it’s currently looking wet and windy rather than snowy.”
