Met Office Yellow Weather Warning

Between 00:05 Mon 19th and 10:00 Mon 19th, ice is likely to form on untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths. This increases the risk of accidents, as well as injuries due to falls. Further snow is likely across parts of the southwest of England, easing from the north by morning, with a few light snow showers for other southern counties for a time.
