Ice to hit Northern Ireland with yellow weather warning in place

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for Northern Ireland, with ice and rain set to hit the province over the weekend.

The warning will come into place from 10pm on Saturday and last through until 10am on Sunday morning.

Surfaces will turn icy, with rain, sleet and hail showers overnight.

Snowfall is also expected in some hilly regions.

With temperatures falling, the public are warned to expect icy patches forming in places, especially on untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths, creating slippery surfaces and tricky driving conditions.

The Met Office has warned showers overnight could wash away salt treatment from some roads, increasing the risk of ice.

Snow is only expected to settle in higher areas, mostly above 300m elevation.

A weather warning is also in place in parts of Scotland and Wales, as well as the north of England, Yorkshire and the West Midlands.
