A yellow weather warning for snow and ice is in place until 3pm.

Light winds and clearing skies overnight is likely to have called a risk of patchy ice forming on untreated surfaces. This mainly for the south and east of the island until 9am. Higher ground remaining sub-zero throughout with icy stretches especially where snow covered.

Trough approaching the island late morning is expected to lead to an area of rain/sleet/snow/hail that could allow slight accumulations of snow mainly in areas above 500 feet. For low-levels temporary slight slushy accumulations are possible depending on the intensity of the precipitation.
