Weather: Snow and ice warning for Northern Ireland

CNR International made the decision as t he Met Office predicts Thursday will see wind gusts of up to 80 miles per hour and large waves.

It continued that windy weather could cause travel disruptions and power cuts in some areas. As the storm moved away from the United Kingdom and towards Scandinavia on Friday it would be followed by cold air.

"Some damage to buildings is possible, such as tiles blowing off roofs", the Met Office said. Generally dry to begin with winter sunshine, but scattered rain and hail showers will start to feed down in the brisk northwest flow.

"At the moment we have a yellow weather warning in place, but it could be upgraded to amber".

This will be followed by a day of "increasingly frequent" snow showers across Scotland which will affect most of the country, including parts of Tayside.

"Longer journey times and cancellations are likely as road, rail, air and ferry services may be affected". Some short term loss of power and other services is possible.

Travolta guns for wider release of 'Gotti,' buys back biopic
John Travolta's " Gotti " is making headlines for reportedly being dropped from release a mere 10 days before opening in theaters. They said no, twice, and I literally begged them to reconsider and they finally and generously let it go, " Travolta continued".

The Met Office said: "Any snow showers will be most frequent over northern and western parts, and perhaps the east coast, but at times may become more widespread".

Met Eireann last issued a snow warning for Donegal last month when temperatures plunged to -2C on Thursday, November 23, leading to some snowfall on high ground housing estates in towns like Letterkenny.

Coastal routes, seafronts and coastal communities are likely to be affected by spray or large waves.

Government forecasters expect this month to be hit by easterly winds, which frequently come from as far away as Russian Federation and Siberia to bring Britain's coldest winter weather.

A snow-ice warning has been issued for Ireland for the coming days.
