Weekend Weather Takes A Turn As UK Forecasts Snow And Strong Winds

The Met Office has issued a second severe weather warning for Northern Ireland only this time it's for snow and ice. It will turn quite windy from Saturday evening into Sunday with some wind gusts over 40 miles per hour, especially Sunday morning.

Snow is in the forecast for Sunday, with 1 to 2 inches of accumulation possible for Boston before changing over to rain. "Poor visibility, with slippery and icy conditions, will occur at times".

Blustery or windy early this morning in Leinster with heavy showers, some wintry in north Leinster.

The system will also bring gusty winds up to 70 or 80 kms/h on Sunday. Numerous showers will be heavy and wintry in nature with a mix of rain, hail, sleet and snow and scattered thunderstorms.

Forecaster Nick Miller said temperatures will start to drop on Thursday as cold air is dragged over Britain.

Strong gusts of wind will be a feature of tomorrow afternoon, but the rain should have cleared away by then. Lesser amounts of snow are expected in the southeast metro area, where rain is expected to mix in with the snow early on; higher amounts to the northwest, which will likely see all snow.

It followed heavy snow across the north of England and Scotland overnight, with temperatures dropping severely.

"The surface low is forecast to intensify as it tracks towards the northeast from Kansas to MI through early Sunday". The weather is predicted to be at its worst in the morning, with winds gradually easing in the afternoon. Highest temperatures of 7 to 10 degrees. Sunday looks partly-to-mostly sunny and seasonably chilly with highs in the 30s. The high for Sunday will be near 6 C.

Again the Met Office is warning about possible transport and travel disruption - with bus and train journeys potentially affected - as a result of the conditions.
