A yellow weather warning of snow and ice has been issued by the Met Office for Nottinghamshire.

Following a spell of rain and hill snow, temperatures will fall quickly allowing widespread ice to form on untreated pavements, cycle paths and roads, according to the Met Office.

Heavy sleet, hail and snow showers will follow and there is a chance of injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces.

Bus and train services may be delayed or cancelled with some road closures and longer journey times possible.

The chief forecaster’s assessment said: “Rain and hill snow is expected to clear northwestern Scotland late on Thursday evening and these clearer conditions will spread to all parts by early Friday morning.

“Ice is expected to form as skies clear.

“Heavy sleet, hail and snow showers will follow and these will be most frequent across Northern Ireland, western Scotland, northwest England and, by morning, across Wales and the north and west Midlands.

“Two-to-five centimeters of snow may accumulate above 100m with some snow to low levels to.”

The warning has been updated to extend it further south and east, delaying the start time of the warning to just after midnight.
