Widespread icy patches are expected to readily form on untreated surfaces this evening and during Saturday night, especially where snow cover exists or where wintry showers occur.
The public should take extra care and be aware of the possibility of some disruption to travel. Northerly winds have followed Friday nights vigorous depression introducing much colder conditions. Clear spells on Saturday evening and night will allow temperatures to fall sharply allowing widespread ice to readily form on untreated surfaces. The most widespread ice is expected where melting snow cover refreezes and where showers occur.
