A yellow weather warning for ice has been issued by the Met Office across much of East Lothian as temperatures are expected to drop over night.

The warning is in place from 10pm tonight until 10am tomorrow across most of the county.

A statement on the Met Office website reads: “Frequent showers, falling as snow above around 400 metres with accumulations of 5-10cm across the Southern Uplands, will gradually ease overnight with clear spells developing across northern Scotland initially, extending further south towards the end of Saturday night.

“This will allow wet surfaces to fall below freezing leading to some icy stretches on untreated surfaces.”

The Met Office has warned that Icy surfaces could lead to some difficult travelling conditions in places tonight and tomorrow morning.

Those using the roads during this time should be cautious of the cold and icy weather and plan journeys appropriately.

More information on the areas covered by the warning and what to do in icy conditions can be found on the Met Office website.
