Mournes waterfall transformed into ice kingdom in cold snap

By Staff Reporter

Walkers on the Granite Trail in Newcastle were given an unexpected treat after a waterfall froze.

The Thomas's Mountain Quarry waterfall was transformed into a spectacular ice kingdom in the Mournes.

Although it was cold across Northern Ireland, yesterday was much sunnier and drier than it has been recently.

And while a sharp frost was due inland overland, the good news is that the improvement is set to continue.

The Met Office said that today will be a fine dry day for most with plentiful sunshine lifting the early frost.

The maximum temperature is predicted to be 7C.

However some showers may develop along the north coast later in the day,and cloud will thicken overnight to bring rain.

The outlook until Friday is for milder and quite unsettled weather, with winds from the west to southwest, sweeping a series of showers and rain bands across the country.
