A yellow weather warning for ice, which covers all of Northamptonshire, has been issued by the Met Office.

Although the temperature is expected to be milder at around 7C on Sunday afternoon, the lead up to the weather warning will see temperatures below freezing. Rain is also forecast for Sunday, hence the ice warning.

The weather warning comes after NN Weather reported the coldest morning on Thursday (December 15) for 12 years, with some areas of the county reaching -12C, followed by another night of -10C in rural areas of the county and -8C in towns.
