CS Lewis's icy world evoked in the Mournes as more snow is forecast. By Paul Byrne

The Mourne Mountains are said to have inspired Belfast-born CS Lewis to create the magical land of Narnia — and yesterday’s scene near Rathfriland recaptured in fairytale fashion the icy Narnian winter from The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.

The beautiful scene was photographed by Paul Byrne.

The sun peeped through clouds scurrying over the Mourne Mountains with a picturesque patchwork of frosted fields below.

In the foreground is a snowy country lane, a frost-covered hedge and an open gate.

All the elements combine to form the kind of vision of a winter wonderland which help to make the practical inconveniences of snowfall tolerable.

And scenes like this look set to remain as weather experts warned that fresh snow was set to fall overnight. Co Armagh and Co Down are expected to be most affected, so the land pictured above could be even more wintry-looking by today.

The Met Office said that |further rain, sleet and snow were expected in the southwest of the UK with the snow extending to Northern Ireland.

A spokesperson for the Department for Regional Development said gritters were preparing to carry out salting of the roads last night.

“The outlook for the next 36 hours is for further rain, sleet and snow,” he said. “This is likely to give rise to hazardous weather conditions with accumulations of 50mm of slushy snow and the possibility of 100mm on high ground.

“Due to sub-zero temperatures, widespread ice is expected. Roads Service operational teams will be carrying out |salting operations to the main through routes this evening and overnight.

“Motorists are advised to drive carefully and exercise special caution on untreated roads.”

Flights and services at George Best Belfast City Airport returned to normal yesterday. A spokeswoman for Belfast International Airport said they had no cancellations and few delays.
