The Met Offive has today issued a yellow weather warning for snow across all parts of Northern Ireland saying a "period of snowfall could bring some disruption on Thursday and into Friday morning".

The warning is in place from 6:00am on Thursday morning (8th February) until 6:00am on Friday morning (9th February).

A Met Office spokesperson commented:

"A band of rain, sleet, and increasingly snow, will push north on Thursday bringing up to 2cm snow at lower-levels, 2-5cm on ground above 200m, and perhaps as much as 15-25cm above 400m, along with a risk of some icy conditions.

"The snow will ease later in the day, and may turn back to rain or drizzle, especially in the south and east of the area.

"There is some uncertainty with respect to the rain/snow boundary, and the northern limit of the snow, and so details may change in the coming days as confidence increases in these aspects."
