A YELLOW weather waning of wind and snow has been issued from midnight on Sunday through to the end of day on Tuesday.

This is followed by a yellow warning of snow and ice until noon on Wednesday.

The Met Office stated that Storm Ciara will bring very strong winds and potentially some disruption to travel throughout Sunday.

Heavy snow and strong winds will combine from Monday to lead to disruption to travel, especially over higher routes.

Frequent and heavy snow showers will affect the region throughout Monday and Tuesday. Snow showers will occur, especially over high ground.

The Met Office said delays and cancellations to rail and air travel should be expected and vehicles could become stranded on roads.

Power cuts may occur and other services, such as mobile phone coverage may be affected.

Delays for high-sided vehicles on exposed routes and bridges is also likely.

There will be icy patches on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths and there is a danger of injury from slipping or falling on icy surfaces.

Further snow showers are likely on Wednesday morning. Snow accumulations over lower ground are likely to be temporary.
