A weather warning for snow and ice has been issued for the North of Ireland on Saturday, February 13
The Met Office has said snow is due to arrive early on Saturday morning and continue through the day.
Several centimetres are possible quite widely, while up to 15 cm could build up over hills and mountains.
It also said snow could turn to freezing rain later in the day bringing a risk of ice.
As a result of the forecast wintry weather the Met Office says disruption to travel is likely.
The snow will be accompanied by strong south-easterly winds which are likely to create blizzard like conditions over high ground.
The strongest gusts of about 80km/h (50mph) can be expected around the coast.
It will feel bitterly cold when the wind chill is factored in, with temperatures between 3 and 5C feeling much colder.
The warning comes into force at midnight on Friday, February 12, until midnight on Saturday.
Much milder air will move in from Sunday, February 14, with temperatures widely in the double figures.Tags:
