The Met Office have issued a yellow weather warning for ice on the Isle of Wight tomorrow morning (Friday).

The alert - which is valid until 12pm - reads: "This morning, scattered snow showers may lead to accumulations of up to 3cm". Showers of rain and sleet will become isolated and highest temperatures will be 4 to 6 degrees.

It says bus and train services may be delayed and some roads could be closed.

People are warned to take extra care on icy roads.

The weekend will kick-off with a thick frost on Saturday before a wave of showers sweeps in from the west bringing a mixture of rain, sleet and sunny spells.

Temperatures are expected to drop below freezing in those areas and are not expected to reach much higher than 4C or 5C in the south of England.

A separate warning for ice runs concurrently until 9am on Friday, with injuries from slips and falls possible.

"Councils remain well prepared for the cold with 1.5 million tonnes of salt stockpiled and a fleet of state-of-the-art gritters ready to be deployed".
