Met Office warns of ice and snow

Weekend Weather: Wet And Windy

A weather warning has been issued for snow and ice across the North-east.

Met Office forecaster Aidan McGivern said: "The rain across Northern Ireland and Scotland into the evening will push into the colder air which will mean we will see some sleet at lower levels, snow building up over the hills over central and southern Scotland and as well as the north of England".

The warning is valid from until 11.59pm Sunday 11 February.

The warning applies to all of Munster, Leinster and County Galway.

A status yellow warning, issued by Met Éireann, says strong winds with gusts up to 110 kph are possible from 3pm this Saturday. Between 25 and 35 mm of rain is expected.

It will see wintry showers give accumulations of up to 3cm of snow, with larger amounts on higher ground - especially in Ulster and Connacht.

The warning is in place from just after midnight on Sunday morning and into 11am. Temperatures are expected to plummet to -3 degrees. Highest temperatures will range from 4°C to 6°C.

"For a time most of this going through Saturday night into the start of Sunday leaves behind a legacy of icy patches, so you will have to look out for those first thing Sunday".

"Ice will develop quite widely as this system moves away and skies clear".

Tuesday will be cold with good sunny spells and some scattered wintry showers in the west and north for a time. Highest temperatures will range from 9°C to 12°C. On Tuesday night, frost and ice will develop for a time.

Half term week is going to be wet, windy, snowy and bitterly cold.
