Orange weather warning persists

The MET office has issued blanket yellow warnings across Scotland covering Saturday night into Sunday morning. "Probably some icy stretches on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths and also a chance of injuries from slips and falls on icy and snowy surfaces".

Now the Met Office has a warning in place until 6pm this evening but winter weather is set to continue.

The orange warning issued today at 11am covers all of Connaught, as well as Cavan, Monaghan, Donegal, Dublin, Kildare, Laois, Longford, Louth, Wicklow, Offaly, Westmeath and Meath.

Nevertheless, the Met Office, in conjunction with Highways England, is warning that rural communities in the county still face being cut off by the snow.

NZ into Cape Town quarters
The English overcame Uganda 36-0 and Argentina 24-7 before edging Scotland 12-7 after trailing by seven points at half-time. New Zealand face England in the quarters tomorrow.

A spell of heavy snow is possible over parts of Wales, the Midlands and parts of Northern England on Sunday.

The Met Office is also warning more potentially disruptive weather could be on its way for southern areas of the country early next week. It'll be frosty and icy with lowest temperatures of zero to minus four degrees. Bitterly cold with frost lingering in places through the day.

Tomorrow is expected to bring more heavy rain and snow fall, with temperatures expected to stay below freezing.

"When we see weather conditions worsen we also tend to see people who would normally cycle, walk or use public transport opt to use a auto if they have access to one".
