Its Upper Derwent Valley forecast predicts maximum temperature between 6 and 9 degrees today.

In an alert issued at 4.15am, the bureau says icy roads will make driving conditions potentially dangerous during the day in parts of the Upper Derwent Valley, North West Coast, Central North, North East, Western, Central Plateau, Midlands, East Coast and South East forecast districts.

Tasmania Police has issued cautions about some Upper Derwent Valley roads including patchy frost on the Lyell Hwy between Black Bobs and Derwent Bridge, and on Highland Lakes Rd from Barren Tier to Miena. Check for other road warnings at the Tasmania Police community alerts page.

The next road alert will be issued by 11am.
