Wind and ice warnings issued for Exeter
Yellow weather warnings of wind and ice are in place in Exeter tomorrow, with gusts due to reach speeds of up to 47mph and sleet showers forecast.
The Met Office has issued a yellow warning of ice between 3am and midday on Tuesday, and a yellow warning of wind from 9am until 6pm.
Surfaces will remain wet after continued showers of rain, sleet and snow, allowing ice to form, the Met Office says.
The ice warning urges the public to be aware of widespread icy stretches on untreated roads and pavements, and to take extra care when walking, cycling or driving in affected areas.

The wind warning calls on the public to be aware of debris being blown around by strong gusts, and says some branches or trees could be brought down.
There may be localised travel disruption, and localised problems for high-sided vehicles on prone routes.
Drive with care, especially on exposed routes, the Met Office says.
Heavy showers are forecast overnight in Exeter on Monday, turning to sleet by around 6am on Tuesday.

Thursday is set to be cloudy but considerably warmer, with temperatures feeling as high as 3C. Further light showers are on the cards on Thursday evening, but Friday should be dry and cloudy with sunny intervals.
