A yellow weather warning for snow and ice across the North-east has been issued by the Met Office.
The alert will come into effect at 8pm tonight and will remain in place until 11am tomorrow.
A post on the forecaster’s website states: “A mix of rain, hail, sleet and upland snow showers, some heavy, will leave many roads wet tonight and into Saturday morning allowing patchy ice to form.
“Over upland routes above around 200-300 metres some slushy snow deposits could occur, more notably on hill routes above 400 metres. Travel conditions could become difficult and hazardous, especially on untreated surfaces, or where showers wash away grit or salt.”
