A Met Office spokesperson said: “Expect some icy patches to form on untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths on Thursday evening and overnight into Friday.

“There is a risk of slippery surfaces and difficult driving conditions.

“Across Northern Ireland and northern England, snow will be confined to higher routes, but icy patches are likely where showers leave surfaces wet.”

Despite a yellow status warning of snow in Scotland, it’s highly we’ll be seeing any this early in winter, but it’s safe to safe…winter is here!
