Ice warning as temperatures fall

By a County Press reporter

Tuesday, January 22, 2013


ICE warnings for the Isle of Wight have been issued by the Met Office. 

The first 'be aware' warning is in place from 4pm today (Tuesday) to 11am tomorrow (Wednesday) and covers the whole of England. The second warning is from 00.05am to 11am on Thursday and covers the south and south west coast.

The Met Office said: "As temperatures fall on Tuesday evening and night, icy stretches will form on many untreated surfaces especially where lying snow freezes. 

"There may also be a few light snow flurries in places though any new accumulations will be slight. Freezing fog patches may also add to travel difficulties.

"As temperatures fall on Wednesday night, icy stretches are likely to form on many untreated surfaces, especially where residual showers drift inland off the English Channel. 

"The public are advised to take extra care."
