A 'snow and ice' weather warning has been extended to Cornwall this weekend, as temperatures continue to plummet.

The Met Office has issued a yellow warning that will be in place until 12 noon tomorrow (Sunday).

Some parts of the Duchy will drop to below freezing by the middle of the evening today, although there are no snow showers forecast.

Despite this a few places have reportedly seen a very small fluttering of flakes already today, including in Breage for a few minutes before it turned up hail.

However any snowfall seen is not expected to stick or accumulate.

The bigger issue for Cornwall is likely to be ice, particularly on smaller roads not on the council's gritting routes.

One of the coldest places in Cornwall will be the Bodmin area, where temperatures are due to drop to -2C by 9pm tonight, although it will feel more life -4C.

And it's only going to get colder after the weather warning has ended. The temperature is forecast to drop to -3C by 6am Monday, which will feel like -7C, in some parts such as Bodmin Moor. 

The Met Office has warned: "Some disruption is likely due to icy surfaces, with snowfall in a few places."

What to expect 

-Probably some icy patches on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths

-Possible injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces

-In a few areas, difficult travel conditions may occur quite quickly due to heavy sleet, snow or hail showers making surfaces slippery or even snow-covered
