The Banbridge District could be set for snowfall tonight (Thursday).

A yellow warning for snow and ice has been issued across Northern Ireland. It lasts from 7pm this evening to 9am tomorrow morning.

The MET office confirmed that “a zone of rain and hill snow will affect Northern Ireland later on Thursday evening before moving into parts of Scotland and northern England during the early hours of Friday.

“Over ground above 200 to 300 metres snow is expected to accumulate, especially over Scotland where there is also a chance that snow could fall to lower levels for a time. As this rain and snow moves away, especially from Northern Ireland, skies will clear allowing temperatures to drop and icy patches to form on untreated surfaces.”

There was also a warning for drivers, as the roads could become dangerous.

“Please be aware that rain, snow and icy patches could lead to some disruption to travel,” said the MET office warning.
