The Met Office has issued three yellow weather warnings for County Armagh over the coming days, for snow and ice on Sunday/Monday and high winds for Wednesday.

According to forecasters showers will affect Northern Ireland and Northern England during Sunday and into Monday morning. These showers will fall increasingly as snow, particularly above 250 metres with a mixture of rain, hail, sleet and snow to lower levels.

Accumulating snow may lead to travel disruption on routes over high ground, whilst icy stretches are also likely to form on untreated surfaces.

They said: “The public should be aware of the potential for disruption to travel during Sunday night and Monday morning.”

An early warning for high winds has also been issued for Wednesday.

The Met Office said: “Severe gales may affect much of North Wales, Northern England, Scotland and Northern Ireland on Wednesday with a risk of storm force winds for parts of Western Scotland.

“The very strong winds may lead to significant disruption due to fallen trees and hazardous driving conditions. The public should be aware of the potential for disruption to travel and perhaps also power supplies.

“Frequent wintry showers will also affect these regions proving an additional hazard.”
