Following the snow today (Fri), an icy weekend is predicted ahead.

The Met Office has issued further warnings of ice for the weekend after the snowfall today.

The warning covers part of North Devon, including Torrington, South Molton, Chulmleigh and Exmoor.

A spokesman for the forecasters said: “Some further slight snowfalls are likely, with one-to-two cm of fresh snow in a few places.

“But the focus switches to ice with sub-zero temperatures persisting over existing snow cover for many areas and spreading back into parts of the southwest towards daybreak on Saturday.”

The warning is currently in place from 12.05am tomorrow (Sat) until 11am on Sunday
