A yellow weather warning for icy conditions remains in place across the whole of Devon and Cornwall.

The alert, issued by the Exeter-based Met Office, is in place until 11am today.

They warn that ‘icy stretches may lead to some difficult driving conditions’, and ‘some injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces’ may occur.

Drivers are being warned that ‘some icy patches on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths’ may be present a danger.

The warning was issued on Friday morning.

It covers almost the entirety of England, going right up to the Scottish border in some places.

Temperatures are expected to remain low this weekend, with plenty of cloud around.

However, patches of sunshine are anticipated as the afternoon wears on, with temperatures climbing to around 5C.

Temperatures are expected to start climbing noticeably on Sunday, with highs of 8C and plenty of sunshine around the South-West.

The Met Office says temperatures will be ‘mild’ across the south and west of the UK in the coming fortnight, although there could also be rain despite the moderate temperatures.

Their long-range forecast warns of ‘an increased chance of unsettled conditions, with above average precipitation and with temperatures slightly above average’ in the region.
