Isolated showers on the coast are the region’s only chance of seeing snow this weekend – and Weatherquest forecasters have said we shouldn’t get our hopes up.

Most areas will see temperatures drop as low as -4C (24F) over the next two nights. Road users should be aware of increased stopping distances in icy conditions.

And these figures are unlikely to climb until Sunday, where we can expect temperatures of -1C (30F) or above – but sharp frosts are still likely.

A spokesman for the organisation said: “There is little chance of snow, but temperatures will fall quite dramatically. We are seeing a period of bitter coldness with hard frosts and low readings, so we’d advise the public to wrap up warm and be careful on the roads.”
