Snow and hail are expected until about midnight, but they say they will dissipate in “light flurries” around 10 p.m.

Light snow will continue overnight, until 2 am Thursday morning.

The Met Office also says colder weather will start on Monday.

A spokesman said: “Still settled for many early next week but a trend of showers and colder conditions are expected from the north from Monday.

“Showers are likely to be concentrated in northern and eastern regions, potentially wintry over the northern hills and lower levels in the far northeast.

“Plenty of persistent dry weather in the south and west. Potential for strong winds in the extreme northeast early in the period.

“Later next week and beyond, more unstable conditions are likely with more frequent showers or longer spells of rain for many areas.

“After a period of below average temperatures next week, temperatures are expected to return to near average later in the period.”
