There are weather warnings in place for the next number of days for snow and ice.
The MET Office has warned that further showers of snow, sleet and hail will affect western parts of the UK, these frequent in western Scotland and the north of Northern Ireland, where thunder is also possible.
1-3 cm of snow may accumulate at low levels inland, and perhaps 5-10 cm on hills above 200m.
Showers will gradually fade overnight Tuesday into Wednesday, with icy stretches developing as skies clear, particularly where earlier snow has partly melted. As is usually the case with showers, some places will miss them, while some coastal fringes may see rain or hail.
The warning is in place for County Antrim, County Armagh, County Down, County Fermanagh, County Londonderry, and County Tyrone.
If you are a Housing Executive tenant and your home has been affected by severe weather conditions call us on 03448 920 901.
Further information and advice is available from the Met Office website:
