A flurry of snow could be on the way for the region, with temperatures set to drop below freezing towards the end of next week.
While the next few days should remain mild and dry, forecasters say early morning temperatures are set to plummet.
Adam Dury, from forecasters Weatherquest, said the next few days should be dry, cloudy and mild, with only a 'spit and spot of drizzle'.
But by Thursday, temperatures in the morning are set to fall to -2C to -3C, with a small chance of ice forming on the roads.
'When you get colder temperatures there is always a risk of ice,' Mr Dury said.

But even if we do see some snowfall, it will quickly turn to rain, with Mr Dury saying it would only be likely to fall for half an hour to an hour.
Last year, the region was hit by the Beast from the East in late February, with the snowstorms continuing until early March.
