The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for snow and ice across the North of Ireland from 7 pm this evening, Tuesday, March 7, as the cold snap continues.
Temperatures dipped to below freezing on Monday night and into Tuesday morning.
The warning, which affects counties Derry, Tyrone, Londonderry, Antrim, and Down lasts until 9 am on Wednesday, March 8.
A few snow showers will continue, especially in the north and north-east.
The Met Office says 1-2cm of snow could fall in some locations and there is an added risk of ice.
It will also be a particularly cold night with temperatures inland widely expected to fall to -5C, even lower in some rural spots.
A warning for ice and low temperatures has also been issued across parts of the Republic of Ireland for Tuesday night.
Met Éireann is warning of some hazardous conditions with icy stretches on roads and footpaths.
The warnings follow some snowfall overnight on Monday and into Tuesday.
More snow is expected later in the week with the worst conditions developing from early on Thursday.
There is still a degree of uncertainty about how severe the weather will be.
Parts of the North of Ireland, along with Wales and northern England, are expected to be worst affected.
The organisation said 15-20cm of snow could be expected in some parts and strong winds could lead to blizzard-like conditions.Tags:
