Forecasters say outbreaks of rain, sleet and snow will move westwards across the region on Saturday night (February 6).

They have also warned there could be between one and four centimetres of snow, mainly on the hills, at levels of above 200-300 metres.

The forecaster said as temperatures plummet ice will form on untreated surfaces, causing potential dangers on the roads.

The Met Office is warning people to expect some roads and rail services to be affected by the freezing conditions and people should expect longer journey times.

It is also warning there could be some injuries and falls due to slips and falls on icy surfaces and there will be icy patches on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths.
