DROPPING temperatures have led the Met Office to issue a weather warning for Burton and South Derbyshire.
The region is set for icy conditions on Friday, followed by heavy rain at the weekend.
A yellow warning is currently in place for the West Midlands and the East Midlands
The icy conditions are expected to take hold tonight, causing a danger to road users today.
A spokesman said: “Following showers on Thursday afternoon and evening, some wintry, temperatures will fall quite quickly to bring the risk of icy stretches, especially on untreated surfaces.”
A yellow warning means that people need to ‘be aware’.
