Met Office issues snow and ice warning for north

Weather

It will start to influence our forecast as early as tonight with rain and snow showers moving into southwest Colorado.

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.

A STORM is set to bring heavy rain and winds to our region this week.

"Gusts of 50-55mph are likely inland and up to 65mph along western coasts." said Mr Gundersen.

It will be dry in many parts with sunny spells; however, a few showers will occur, chiefly in parts of the west and north. Showers will gradually ease through the morning, becoming confined to northeast Ulster in the afternoon.

Berliners get day off for Women's Day
Women demanded the right to vote, right to work, vocational training and the end of discrimination in the workplace. They called it National Women's Day, and it took place on February 28.

Temperatures are not likely to get much above 10 or 11C - but with the wind chill, this could feel more like 6 to 8C.

The warning's valid from noon tomorrow until 9am on Wednesday.

The overnight snow comes as an active jet stream from the Atlantic hurtles directly across the United Kingdom bringing strong winds, torrential downpours, and sleet. This evening, rain will spread northeastwards over the province. This next band of heavy rain is expected to last for several hours, sweeping eastwards - and arriving in Plymouth at around 8am.

The wind warning is for Wednesday between 12.15am and 3pm and also covers the whole of Cambridgeshire, Lincolnshire and the surrounding areas.

There are now weather warnings in place for four consecutive days in the United Kingdom, with Yellow warnings for rain in place in parts of North West England on Thursday and Friday.
