Winter looks set to bite as a warning for snow and ice has been issued for Northern Ireland tonight.

The warning is in place from 7pm until 9am tomorrow and could cause dangerous conditions for drivers.

Weather experts said snow is expected to accumulate on higher ground, leading to icy conditions throughout early morning.

The snow, ice and rain could lead to travel disruption, they added.

The Met Office severe weather warning stated: A zone of rain and hill snow will affect Northern Ireland later on Thursday evening before moving into parts of Scotland and northern England during the early hours of Friday.

Over ground above 200 to 300 metres snow is expected to accumulate, especially over Scotland where there is also a chance that snow could fall to lower levels for a time.

As this rain and snow moves away, especially from Northern Ireland, skies will clear allowing temperatures to drop and icy patches to form on untreated surfaces. Please be aware that rain, snow and icy patches could lead to some disruption to travel.
