A yellow weather warning for ice has been issued for Leeds today - but the worst of the ice and snow will make way this weekend.

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for ice, following a day of occasional snow showers and sleet across Leeds.

The warning comes after snow fell in Leeds on Thursday and crashes happened on several roads on Friday due in part to the treacherous conditions.
A spokesman said: "Icy stretches are affecting some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths or where showers have caused wash off on treated roads.

"These icy stretches are likely to last during the Friday morning rush hour for many places.

"This is an update to make this solely an ice warning as snow showers have eased over Scotland during Thursday night with the majority of showers over eastern England now falling as rain and sleet. Orkney, Shetland, some coastal parts of northeast England and much of East Anglia have also been removed from the warning with surface temperatures having risen in these areas."
