A ‘Yellow’ weather warning for ice has been issued by the Met Office and remains in force for large parts of Devon until 11am this morning.

The weather warning reads: “An area of rain is likely to run across the south of England during Wednesday before clearing to the east overnight into Thursday.

“This will leave surfaces wet with ice forming rapidly once the rain clears. There remains some uncertainty over the extent of the rain through Wednesday with the far south most likely to see this.

“In addition there is a threat of a little snow falling, mainly above 200 m with some accumulations of 2-3 cm but the majority of places will only see rain.”
