The chief forecaster’s assessment states: “Later on Saturday night and during Sunday morning more general rain, sleet and snow will spread across the area from the west and north. Some slight accumulations of snow are expected, 1 to 2 cm, mainly over higher ground above 150 m. This is also likely to lead to ice forming in places.”

The warning refers to ‘icy stretches developing on untreated surfaces and where treatment is temporarily washed off of surfaces’ and the ‘chance of difficult driving conditions on untreated roads and slippery conditions on pavements and cycle paths are possible’.
