Weather alert: snow and Storm Caroline heading for Ireland

The cold front moves in today and forecasters are predicting strong winds of up to 110km/h in some places, as well as up to 3cm of snow.

The Met Office has extended the warning area again - it now takes in nearly all of the county, with the exception of the very north east corner.

Snow showers will affect northern Scotland later on Thursday, with the risk extending across more of Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and western parts of England on Friday.

Between 10 and 20cm of snow can be expected over hills and mountains.

A yellow "be aware" warning is in force for the southern half of Scotland and parts of the north of Northern Ireland between 6am and 6pm as well.

Sunday's weather warning is in force from 04.00 on Sunday until 23:55.

"A spell of heavy snow is possible over some central parts of the United Kingdom during Sunday", reports the Met Office.

Snow and falling temperatures are also forecast for parts of Britain later in the week.
