It doesn’t seem as though we’ll have much more (if any) snow for the moment, but the Met Office have issued a yellow (be alert) warning for Ice tomorrow (valid from 0005 to 2359 on Monday 21st January 2013).

They say, “Sub-zero overnight temperatures will lead to ice forming where snow has fallen or melted during Sunday. In addition there is the risk of further localised snowfalls of some 1-3 cm in places during Monday with a low risk of as much as 5 cm. The public should be aware of the risk of disruption to travel during this continuing spell of wintry weather.”
