Met Office issues yellow wind warning for north Shropshire and North Wales

Snow ice weather

Everywhere will see some snow for the next few days, but you will be most likely to be impacted the higher up you live.

Ms Maxey said snow showers tomorrow into Thursday could be heavy and persistent.

A flood warning was issued last night as rain pelted the south-west of England, following flooding in the east on Friday. Lowest temperatures between -1C degrees and +2C degrees in fresh to strong westerly winds.

'It is also going to be accompanied by some cold winds as well, gale-force winds at time across the south, mainly coastal sites and exposed hills.

All counties in Leinster, Cavan, Monaghan, Roscommon, Limerick, Tipperary and Waterford have been issued with a yellow alert with gusts of 110km/h expected. She added: "It hasn't quite reached the criteria for naming yet as there would need to be an amber warning, but we are keeping an eye on it".

'In England and Wales, we are looking at a mixture of sunshine and blustery showers with some hail, sleet and snow mixed in, which will continue towards the end of the week.

Yellow "be aware" warnings of snow and ice across much of Scotland and Northern Ireland are also in force until 6pm on Wednesday.

The Yellow warnings are for Snow and Ice so as temperatures drop overnight, the mushy melting bits will freeze and there will be hard conditions on the roads as the gritters carry on their work.

Gritters were out in force across Scotland, with pictures on social media showing particularly hard driving conditions on the M8 near Easterhouse.

'There is a chance of power cuts, while services such as mobile phone coverage may be affected'.

The Met Office is warning of "frequent and heavy hail and snow showers".

Heavy rain will push eastwards turning to snow over higher ground. At low levels, accumulations of the order 2-5 cm will be more typical.

The DfI has also warned drivers to "be prepared for road conditions changing over short distances".
