Weather warning of snow and ice for Northern Ireland

The cold snap is set to return with Met Office issuing a yellow snow and ice warning for Northern Ireland this weekend.

St Patrick's Day evening could be affected with the warning in place between 9pm on Saturday and 10am on Sunday.

Co Fermanagh, Co Tyrone, Co Antrim, Co Armagh and Co Down are all set to be affected.

Travel delays on roads along with delays to rail travel seem likely. Icy surfaces will increase the risk of accidents and injuries.

The Met Office's Chief Forecaster said: "Showers are likely to become more frequent across parts of Northern Ireland bringing 1 to 3 cm of snow in places and perhaps 5 - 10 cm over hills."
