A spokesman said: “Later in the night and on Sunday morning an area of more general rain, sleet and snow is expected which will lead to icy stretches and perhaps some slight accumulations of snow.

“There is a chance of difficult driving conditions on untreated roads and slippery conditions on pavements and cycle paths are possible.”

Around two cm of snow is predicted in areas on ground higher than 150m above sea level.
