WEATHER: Cold, frosty & icy overnight

Weather chart for 9/10th Dec 2012 Credit: Met Office/ itv plc

After a beautiful day with strong winds but plenty of blue sky the temperatures really take a dip again overnight with the risk of some wintry showers.

Western parts of the the region will be best placed for clearer and drier conditions as winds turn northerly and feed in showers off the North Sea.

A widespread frost is expected away from the coast and this will turn any showers wintry if they develop inland. Over the hills a few centimetres dusting of snow is possible by dawn.

This overnight combination has led the Met Office to issue a Yellow 'Be Aware' warning for ICE to the eastern half of our region. Western parts remain cold but should stay dry.

The warning continues into Monday as the showers are expected to continue for a time and potentially filter further inland.
