The Met office has issued a yellow warning for snow and ice between 9pm this evening and 12pm tomorrow in both areas. It has predicted snow, possibly heavy at times, developing overnight and into Wednesday, then turning icy.

During this period, there is a small chance of travel delays on roads with some stranded vehicles and passengers, along with delayed or cancelled rail and air travel, the Met has warned.

There is also slight chance that some rural communities could become cut off and that power cuts will occur and other services, such as mobile phone coverage, may be affected.

A chance of injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces is also possible as well as a chance that untreated pavements and cycle paths become impassable because of black ice.
