At lower levels a mix of rain, sleet and snow is expected.

A spell of persistent and at times heavy snow is expected starting on Thursday night and lasting into tomorrow (Friday).

By the morning, accumulations of five to 10cm are likely above about 100m with 15cm or more possible above 200m.

At lower levels and near coasts an uncertain mix of rain and snow is expected, with rain likely to predominate, bringing the risk of standing water on roads.

The warning was issued this morning and is valid until around 3pm on Friday.
