Cold air is moving our way from Europe and it will see temperatures plunge this weekend.

The cold snap may well last into next week and there is likely to be at least some snow in parts of the UK.

A weather warning has been issued for the eastern part of Northern Ireland for heavy rain from Wednesday afternoon and into Thursday morning, which forecasters said could lead to some flooding and result in longer journey times.

Looking ahead to next week, the Met Office says: "It may become rather cold for most, accentuated by the wind, with widespread frosts possible".

"We start to see colder air coming in from the east then, as we go through Friday and into Saturday, when that cold air meets that band of rain on the east side of the country, there's a chance that some of that rain could turn to snow over higher ground", she said.

An "amber" warning is also in place for Friday with road surface temperatures predicted to drop to between zero and 1C.

By the end of the week, it is due to get a lot colder and will only reach highs of 2 degrees Celsius on Sunday.
