Devon County Council is expecting road surface temperatures in parts of the county to drop below zero overnight, meaning there could be ice.
A spokesperson for the met office said: “Showers coming southeast across the area tonight will fall as snow above about 200m, where more than 5cm is possible locally. More significant is the risk of icy roads as surfaces freeze behind the showers.
