The Met Office says Kent is set for snow

A weather warning for snow and ice has been issued for Wales later this week.

STORM CAROLINE is set to bring heavy gales, snow, and ice to Ireland in the coming hours as the extreme weather conditions make their way from the United Kingdom to Irish shores.

Now a Yellow weather warning for snow has been issued for Sunday by Met Office forecasters.

Flights and ferry services have been cancelled while dozens of schools are closed across the north of the country.

Met Éireann said Thursday will be bitterly cold overall, with gusty north to northwest breezes bringing showers over parts of Ulster, Connacht and west Munster by the afternoon.

A Met Office spokesman said: "Possible travel delays on roads stranding some vehicles and passengers with possible delays and cancellations to rail and air travel".

Met Office predictions don't now show snow for London on Monday as their forecast doesn't quite go that far. Severe winds will affect parts of Scotland, but it will generate strong and blustery winds over Ireland also.

Gusts of up to 110km/h are expected along all coastal areas today ahead of Storm Caroline's passage over the North West and North towards Scotland on Thursday.

The storm is expected to last all day, with a yellow "be aware" warning for wind also in force for the southern half of Scotland and northern parts of Northern Ireland.

Met Office forecasters say a mixture of sleet and snow showers will work their way across the whole of Britain, with the potential for blizzard conditions in Scotland.

Northern Ireland, Wales and central parts of the UK can expect snow throughout Sunday, according to UK Snow Updates, while London will get some of the white stuff on Monday.

"It is likely that some coastal routes, sea fronts and coastal communities will be affected by spray and/or large waves".
