The Met Office has issued a fresh ice warning for Preston as the cold weather continues.


The warning is valid from 5pm tonight (December 15) until 11am tomorrow morning.

A statement from the Met Office said: “The cold, showery weather will finally begin to lose its grip as we move into the weekend.

“However before this happens there is scope for some ice affecting areas where wintry showers continue to fall, or where there is existing partly melted snow cover.”

Preston has had an ice warning in place for much of the week after the cold weather lasted longer than anticipated.
