Nothing sweet in weather forecast as Met Éireann issues Storm Caroline warning

While the worst of the storm is hitting Scotland, strong winds and torrential rain were reported in Cumbria overnight.

The warning was issued at around the same time Storm Caroline was officially named by the Met Office in the United Kingdom.

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.

From Friday to Sunday we're being told to expect strong northwesterly winds and snow showers.

"A spell of heavy snow is possible over some central parts of the United Kingdom during Sunday", reports the Met Office.

Today will be the last day of mild conditions before a cold snap forecast to last until Christmas grips the UK.

However, their weather charts show snow is expected in Wales, the West Midlands, and Northern Ireland from around 6am.

A yellow "be aware" weather warning is in place for the region, which runs from 8am on Thursday until just before midnight.

Loss of power will be another concern, along with large waves at the coast.

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

Friday will also be cold, Met Éireann said, with sunshine and scattered rain, hail, sleet and snow showers, and temperatures of 3 to 6 degrees in gusty northwesterly winds. "There is a good chance that power cuts may also occur".

"During winter weather which brings snow showers, it is not uncommon for snow amounts to vary considerably across short distances", said the Chief Forecaster.

Scotland is due to bear the brunt of Storm Caroline but shortly after 2:00pm on Tuesday, Met Éireann issued the weather warning of wind for counties Donegal, Galway, Leitrim, Mayo, Sligo, Clare and Kerry.
