The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for ice which will affect parts of England, including Cirencester.

In the warning, it said we should expect “icy surfaces” on the evening of Friday, January 7 as well as overnight.

You can expect the spell to end at around 11.59pm on Friday.

What you can expect from the yellow weather warning

The Met Office has said that some untreated surfaces like roads, pavements and cycle paths could see icy patches form and as a result, the occurrence of injuries or accidents is more likely.

The national weather forecaster also said: “Early wintry showers in the north, and rain, sleet and hill snow further south will leave surfaces cold and wet by early evening.

“Clear spells for a time will allow ice to form in places, particularly for evening commuters, before temperatures trend up after midnight.”
