istock snow and ice warning
A yellow MET Office weather warning for snow and ice remains in place for Thursday 18th and Friday 19th January.
Snow showers will affect the northwest of the UK during Thursday and Friday, although often falling as sleet and hail near windward coasts. Ice will also form in some areas overnight. Travel delays on roads are likely, as are public transport cancellations.
In a few places, mainly upland areas, vehicles may become stranded. There is a chance of power cuts, while services such as mobile phone coverage may be affected. A few rural communities may become cut off. In addition some roads and pavements will turn icy, increasing the chances of accidents or injuries.
The warning is in place for County Antrim, County Armagh, County Fermanagh, County Londonderry, County Tyrone and County Down.
