The Met Office have issued a yellow severe weather warning for ice across the region and say that rain – or sleet/wet snow – will fall onto already frozen surfaces by the early hours, turning conditions icy.
Island Roads will be gritting the road network from 18:00 with forecasters predicting temperatures to drop to freezing and road temperatures dropping even lower to -1c. A second gritting run will take place at 05:00 tomorrow morning.
Although gritting will take place, drivers are being advised to exercise caution.
Yesterday (Saturday) two vehicles were involved in a road traffic collision on Burnt House Lane – an untreated country lane. Later in the day another vehicle was involved in a more serious incident on nearby Briddlesford Road during a heavy hailstorm.
