An ice warning has been issued by the Met Office for this evening and tonight.

Frost is to be expected to set in soon after dark and will become "severe" later in the night. Snow showers are expected, mainly over higher ground in the north and west of Scotland, with longer journey times possible.

We saw flurries of sleet and snow on Thursday and temperatures overnight are dropping away to -3C in some rural spots. "Even on low lying levels, there could be some in the form of showers - so we're not expecting a widespread blanket of snow", she added.

The Roads Service in Northern Ireland also said road surface temperatures are forecast to fall sub-zero, giving a risk of icy conditions. The gritters will be out overnight but extra care is needed as rain could wash the salt away before it has a change to work properly.

The first snow of winter has been captured on video in Ballymena.

Met Éireann said that scattered showers were likely, especially in Ulster and Connacht.

Driving conditions are expected to be hard in some areas and drivers have been urged to take care on icy roads.
