A Met Office spokesperson said: "The cold, showery weather will finally begin to lose its grip as we move into the weekend. However before this happens there is scope for some ice affecting areas where wintry showers continue to fall, or where there is existing partly melted snow cover."

The public and motorists have been advised to take extra care.
