Snow warning for Northern Ireland

Snow warning for Northern Ireland

A snow warning has been put in place in Northern Ireland as wintery showers are expected through the night.

The Met Office has said that sleet and rain will turn into snow on higher ground.

The warning will be in place from midnight through to 10am on Wednesday.

The Met's Chief Forecaster said: "The active frontal system which brings rain on Tuesday will increasingly come into contact with colder air, with the likelihood that it will start to turn to sleet or snow in places early on Wednesday.

"The situation is finely balanced, and the precipitation may remain as rain over parts of the area."
