Met Office Issue Snow And Ice Warning In The UK For Tomorrow
People are being warned that icy patches could make travel tricky with some roads and railways likely to be affected with longer journey times - accidents and falls are also more likely.
A yellow warning :warning: for #snow :snowflake: has been issued across #NorthernIreland for tonight.- Met Office (@metoffice) December 14, 2019
Outbreaks of rain, sleet and snow could give a covering in places and up to 5cm over hills. There will be #icy stretches as well leading to treacherous conditions.

Forecasters have said that the snow is expected to land on higher ground and could set in at around 9pm this evening, continuing until 11am Sunday morning.
The warning says: "A spell of rain and hill snow is likely to affect many areas, with skies clearing at times to allow icy surfaces, although these won't affect all places.
"The snow is most likely above 200 metres elevation and probably focused in the north Pennines and into parts of Scotland; here it could affect a few lower lying areas."

Luckily, for us, it should be feeling milder next week with some flurries of snow in hilly areas possible.
A statement on the website said: "A less windy interlude is likely for many at the start of next week with longer drier, brighter spells but also night frost and patchy fog. However, there may be further rain in the southeast on Tuesday, perhaps extending further north.
"From mid-week it will turn milder and unsettled again as further bands of rain and strong winds edge in from the west, after which unsettled and sometimes windy conditions will probably last for the rest of the period.
"Snow may occur at times in the north, mainly on high ground. There remains a chance of brief drier, colder interludes, with an increased risk of frost and fog."
