Snow will continue to fall on Friday night and again at the weekend, forecasters have warned.

But the snow will not be as heavy as on Friday, when it closed scores of schools across the county and caused severe delays on roads.

Temperatures will remain low at the weekend, but could climb above freezing on Saturday afternoon. However, with temperatures forecast to dip back below 0C at night, people have been warned to watch out for icy conditions.

The snowy conditions will move away from Northamptonshire during Saturday evening, but a new front could bring more on Sunday and Monday.
