Forecasters say showers will turn increasingly to sleet and snow overnight and into Sunday along western parts of the region, leaving many surfaces slushy.

Meanwhile widespread ice will affect inland areas and there could be between five and 10cm of snow on high ground above 200m.

Minimum temperatures of -1C are expected.

The Met Office said: "A cold westerly flow across Scotland and Northern Ireland will bring increasingly frequent showers across western parts in particular.

"Roads surfaces are likely to fall below freezing during the early hours of Sunday with the risk of widespread ice, but should rise above freezing again through Sunday morning."
