North West set to be blasted by ice


Winter is set to bite as temperatures plummet across the province this weekend.

The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for ice for the north and east of the province as temperatures tumble fast. "Friday will be a cold, breezy day with some bright or sunny spells and showers", the forecaster said.

One warns of snow and ice while the second warns of temperatures dropping to as low as -4 degrees.

"The north and west of the province will be most prone to showers coming in from the Atlantic, carried by the winds".

The Yellow warning now means there are two weather warnings in place in Scotland, as the modified Yellow warning for snow that was due to hit overnight is still in place.

Snow might fall on high ground in Donegal and Mayo, and on other high ground along the west coast.

It added that scattered snow showers could be affected between 05:00 on Friday and 12:00 on Saturday and that Ulster and Connacht would be the worst affected areas.

The weather forecaster is predicting temperatures will drop to -4C in places tonight.
