THE Met Office has issued another yellow warning for ice with hail, sleet and wintry showers on the way. 

The warning is in place from 10pm tonight, Wednesday, until 10am tomorrow.

It's the second night in a row this week a warning has been put in place with forecasters predicting temperatures will 'feel' like -1. 

The cold snap will continue throughout this week before a slight rise in temperatures by the weekend.

A Met Office spokesman added: "Wintry showers are expected to continue through Wednesday night into Thursday morning, especially over Northern Ireland and western Scotland, before developing more widely across parts of northern England, the north Midlands and north Wales later in the night.

"This will leave surfaces wet, leading to icy stretches developing on untreated surfaces.

"Showers will fall as a mixture of hail, sleet and snow.

"Some places are likely to see 1-3 cm of snow, mainly above 100 m, with 5-10 cm possible above 400 m."

The warning is in place for a number of areas in the north west including Warrington, Halton, Cheshire, Merseyside, Lancashire and Greater Manchester.
