The Met Office has issued a weather warning for snow to hit parts of the country which could bring 20cm of the white stuff.
Snow could bring travel chaos and some areas could see blizzards overnight from Thursday at 3am until Friday.
Met Office forecasters wrote, “A band of rain, sleet, and increasingly snow, will push north on Thursday bringing up to 2cm snow at lower-levels, 2-5cm on ground above 200m, and perhaps as much as 10-20cm above 400m.
“The snow will ease later in the day, and may turn back to rain or drizzle, especially in the south and east of the area.
“There is some uncertainty with respect to the rain/snow boundary, and the northern limit of the snow, and so details may change in the coming days as confidence increases in these aspects.”
