Northern England is also expecting snow on Sunday evening.

"A cold Arctic flow will develop on the western flank of the low and as a result temperatures will drop sharply below normal with overnight frosts, crisp winter sun and snow showers over the weekend before more widespread rain, starting as snow, moves in Sunday".

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.

Between 10 and 20cm of snow can be expected over hills and mountains.

The Met Office has a yellow "be aware" warning in force from 00:05 GMT on Friday to 18:00 on Saturday.

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.

Nearly half of the workers on a North Sea platform have been relocated amid safety fears over conditions on Thursday.

"At the moment we have a yellow weather warning in place, but it could be upgraded to amber".

Coastal routes, seafronts and coastal communities are likely to be affected by spray or large waves. "There is a good chance that power cuts may also occur".

Meanwhile, dozens of workers are being removed from a North Sea platform due to safety fears over weather conditions caused by Storm Caroline.

CNR International said it would remove all of the 159 staff on Ninian South, about 240 miles from Aberdeen, from the structure as a precaution.

The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for Northern Ireland, with Storm Caroline expected to brings snow, ice and winds of up to 70mph.

Snow and falling temperatures are also forecast for parts of Britain later in the week.
