WATCH: Ice alert goes out for Cornwall

Published by Sarah Yeoman at 10:50am 21st January 2019. (Updated at 12:42pm 21st January 2019)

An ice warning has gone out for part of Cornwall.

The Met Office has put a yellow alert out for Tuesday morning.

It is in place from midnight through until midday and covers a large part of the Duchy.

Forecasters say there could be trouble on roads and on public transport on the drive to work.

The gritters will be out across the Duchy as the temperatures drop.

The north coast, the Lizard and the far west should escape the worst of the cold conditions though.

What to expect:

  • Some injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces
  • Ice on some roads, pavements and cycle paths
  • Some roads and railways affected with longer journey times by road, bus and train services

"A band of rain and hill snow will move southeastwards across the UK during Monday evening and overnight.

"A brief spell of wet snow is possible on high ground of southern Scotland, northern England and north Wales, with some small accumulations possible.

"Behind this surface temperatures will rapidly fall away with some ice forming on some surfaces.

"Once the rain has cleared, some hail, sleet and snow showers will follow from the northwest, with 1-3 cm above 200 metres and some small accumulations expected at lower levels."
