Temperatures are set to rise over the coming days with no snow forecast through the weekend.

Following ice and snow warnings earlier this week today (Wednesday) is set to be much milder during the day with temperatures of 5°C expected in most areas. However overnight temperatures will drop below freezing and some frost is expected on Thursday morning (January 22), so motorists are advised to travel with caution, especially on untreated roads.

Milder conditions will continue into the weekend with day time temperatures rising to 8°C on Friday and the weather will be most dry although there is a chance of showers.

Saturday will be dry with a maximum of 5°C. Night-time temperatures will remain at or around 0°C until Sunday when daytime temperatures are expected to reach 9°C and night-time temperatures drop to around 7°C.
