It's the question on everyone's lips.

GARDAI have issued a warning about snow and ice as a national weather alert remains in place.

Will North Devon get snow? On high ground, it could even be as deep as 20cm.

Met Éireann forecaster John Eagleton said there is unlikely to be snow during the daytime but snow will gather on higher ground.

There is a chance of up to 5cm of snow on higher ground, and the County Council's 37 frontline gritters will be treating all of Devon's main salting routes.

It will remain in place from 4pm on Thursday afternoon until 6pm Friday, December 8.

"It will be cold for the next 10 days, with temperatures hardly making it up to 10C during the day", said Mr Eagleton.
