Ice and snow warnings for NI

Chilly conditions are set to continue across Northern Ireland this week, with alerts in place for both ice and snow.

According to the Met Office, temperatures will drop to just above freezing but will feel much colder - more like minus 5C at times.A yellow level warning - the lowest used by forecasters - has been put in place for ice overnight and into Tuesday, which could affect the morning rush hour."With falling temperatures accompanying clearing skies, icy stretches are likely to form - especially where earlier treatment may have been washed off," the Chief Forecaster says.Later on Tuesday, the ice warning gives way to a warning for snow - which looks set to continue into Wednesday morning.The Met Office is forecasting up to 10cms on higher ground, with 2-5cms possible at lower levels.Drivers are warned about possible difficult conditions, including some snow which may settle and then refreeze.The end of the week is expected to see more of the same - cold weather with a mixture of sunny spells and wintry showers.
