HEAVY rain could turn into snow as temperatures plummet across the county.
Weather warnings are expected to continue with downpours expected into the weekend.
Sunday should see sunny spells with just light rain, but more wet weather will be on the way on Monday and into next week.
A Met Office forecast said from Tuesday onwards: “It will be rather cold with the risk of frost and ice, although winds will be generally light.
“Thereafter, there is likely to be a return to more unsettled weather as rainbands spread east but conditions are not expected to be as stormy as recent weeks.
“Winds will increase to strong, with gales around western coasts. Between frontal systems, it will turn more settled with a greater chance of frost and ice.”
In the longer term it adds: “Current indications point towards unsettled conditions persisting for much of this period but not as extreme as recently.
“The most likely scenario would see northwestern parts of the UK affected by the most frequent spells of unsettled and windy weather.
“Meanwhile southern and eastern regions should tend to see longer spells of drier and brighter weather than previous weeks, although still with some periods of rain.
“Temperatures are likely to be close to or slightly above the seasonal average, but with some colder periods possible, and the risk of local frost and ice, and hill snow, especially in the north.”
