The yellow weather warning will be in place from just after midnight on Friday to 6pm on Saturday.

“Two to five centimetres of snow is likely for some.

“Icy surfaces are also likely to be an additional hazard, especially overnight.

“Strong northwest winds may cause drifting of the snow in places.

“Some roads and railways are likely to be affected with longer journey times by road, bus and for train services.

“Probably some icy patches on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths.

“Some injuries from slips and falls on icy and snowy surfaces.”
