Despite an improving story across the region over the coming days, and many places staying dry on Saturday, a combination of low temperatures and surfaces being wet with a partial thaw of lying snow will lead to icy stretches affecting untreated surfaces.
Icy stretches will continue to be likely on untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths during the rest of Saturday onwards into Sunday. In addition some snow is likely at times, although away from higher ground amounts are likely to be small. As a result, driving conditions may become difficult and there is an increased chance of injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces.
A further 1-2 cm of snow could affect the tops of the Pennines overnight into Sunday morning before the rain pushes north and temperatures gradually begin to rise.
