In a statement the Met Office said: "Wintry showers, continuing during Friday and overnight, will lead to the possibility of ice forming as temperatures fall this evening and overnight. This will occur primarily on untreated surfaces but perhaps also where grit is washed off by frequent showers. Additionally, 1-3 cm of snow may accumulate on hills above around 200 m and more than 5 cm above 400 m. Some of the heaviest showers could produce slushy conditions even at low levels. Please be aware of possible tricky travel conditions."
