Preston and Lancashire has been warned of freezing temperatures overnight and icy conditions.

Drivers and late-night revellers are being warned of tricky conditions.

The ice warning has been issued by the Met Office and covers the entire county, and the wider North West area.

The chief forecaster states: “An area of rain, sleet and some snow over northeast Scotland will clear overnight, whilst bands of showers, some falling as hail, with sleet or snow over high ground, moving east across many other parts of the warning area during the first part of the night. Showers becoming more restricted to western parts by Sunday morning.

“Temperatures will fall below freezing between the showers and more widely later in the night, leading to a risk of ice, particularly on untreated surfaces.”

The ice warning runs from 10pm on Saturday (28 January) to 10am on Sunday (29 January).

The outlook for the week ahead has overcast conditions on Monday, rain on Tuesday and then a settled period for the remaining week.
