Snow is forecast for parts of Derbyshire.

Steve Ramsdale, Met Office chief forecaster, said: “This cold spell is temporary before we see a return to weather conditions coming from the Atlantic, bringing further bouts of strong winds and rain to the UK.”

Meanwhile, the Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for ice in Derbyshire.

This alert is valid until 10am on Wednesday.

According to the Met Office, there is a risk of injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces, and there will be some icy patches on untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths.
