This comes as Storm Eunice wreaks havoc across the UK. Yellow warnings for ice have been issued in multiple regions of the UK, including Yorkshire & Humber; Wales; Northern Ireland; North East England; Orkney & Shetland; East Midlands; Highlands & Eilean Siar; Strathclyde and West Midlands; and North West England. Yellow warnings for rain have been issued for regions including North West England; North East England; West Midlands and Yorkshire & Humber.

Further yellow wind warnings have also been issued.

The ice warning comes into force today, while the new wind and rain warnings are set to batter the UK from Sunday.

The Met Office warned that the cold weather would lead to “injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces”.

It also said that snow is likely to accumulate on high ground.

It added: “A mixture of wintry showers and clear spells are likely to lead to a cold night with some icy stretches developing on untreated surfaces.

“Brisk northwesterly winds will continue to bring increasingly wintry showers across this area overnight on Friday and at first on Saturday.

“Some snow is likely to accumulate over around 200 m (another 10-15 cm over Scottish Mountains), but the wintry mix is more likely to bring a risk of icy roads and pavements, as surfaces left wet by showers (or hail/snow/slush) then fall below freezing.

“Most showers will ease by Saturday morning.”
