The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for ice across the North East until midday on Saturday.

Forecasters are warning that this may lead to difficult driving conditions and motorists are warned to expect longer journey times.

1 to 2cm of snow is locally possible.

The Chief Forecaster said:

A cold north to northwesterly airstream will maintain the risk of wintry showers through Friday night and Saturday morning.

However, amounts of snow are likely to be very variable with some places remaining dry altogether.
