The organisation has issued a yellow warning for snow and ice in Bradford and parts of West Yorkshire on Friday.

The weather forecasters say it will be generally dry to begin with winter sunshine, but scattered rain and hail showers will start to feed across the country in a northwest direction. High-sided vehicles and motorcyclists are particularly vulnerable to strong winds.

There will also be ground frost with with icy patches and lows of minus 2 degrees, staying coldest over the eastern half of the country.

Slight to moderate accumulations are possible with up to 3 cm in parts along with Icy stretches too.

A Met Eireann forecaster revealed: "Southerly winds of 50 to 65 km/h are expected with gusts of 90 to 110km/h along coastal areas on Wednesday".

We could end up with 1-5cm of snow in some places and even up to a 10cm in other areas.

In Britain meanwhile, Storm Caroline is expected to bring very windy weather to northern Scotland.

"North and northwest counties will be most at risk, as well as higher ground elsewhere".
