The Met Office is warning of icy stretches of road today, Sunday, January 17, where snow has fallen across Derbyshire and the East Midlands overnight.

North Derbyshire and rural areas of Derbyshire have been particularly affected by snow.

Any residual patchy wintry precipitation is expected to clear south and west with some bright or sunny intervals.

A cold, dry day with light winds is expected.

Ice is likely to prove a hazard in places.

The Met Office is warning people about the potential for some travel disruption and difficult driving conditions.

Snake Pass has been closed between Glossop and Ladybower Reservoir, according to news reports, but the Woodhead Pass has been reported as open.

By tonight the Met Office expects it to stay mainly dry with light winds and variable cloud overnight.

Clearer spells may allow for a sharp frost to develop, perhaps with isolated freezing fog patches, and icy patches on untreated surfaces.

The Met Office warned of more frost, ice and frosty fog patches into Monday with widespread frost until Wednesday.

However, milder weather has been forecast for the end of the week.
