Northern Ireland has been issued with a weather warning for ice and snow.

The warning is in place from Wednesday 6pm to Thursday 10am. The extent of ice will vary across the area with inland areas most prone whilst coastal areas are less likely to be affected.

Two to five cm of snow may accumulate above about 100m, with smaller amounts at lower levels.

Northern Ireland's coldest night of the year so far was November 24 which saw temperatures in Katesbridge plummet to -4.9.

The Met Office told the Belfast Telegraph it was "unlikely" to reach that on Wednesday night.

Temperatures are expected to stay in and around the freezing mark in Belfast with them dropping slightly in more rural exposed areas.
