Don't put your scarves and gloves away just yet.

The Met Office has issued yellow weather warnings between Friday, March 16, and Sunday, March 18, in preparation for snow and ice.

The warning starts from 5pm on Friday.

A Met Office statement said: “A band of rain and hill snow will increasingly turn to snow to lower levels through Friday evening and overnight into Saturday.

“This band will gradually ease during Saturday morning as it moves south-westwards, allowing ice to form as it clears.

“Some roads and railways are likely to be affected with longer journey times by road, bus and train services.

“Icy patches are likely on untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths.”

Om Sunday, snow showers are expected.

“Snow showers are likely throughout Sunday, and where these converge some snow may well accumulate and could then prove disruptive.

“There is a small chance of travel delays on roads with some stranded vehicles, along with delayed or cancelled rail and air travel.

“There is a small chance that power cuts will occur and services, such as mobile phone, may be affected.”
