Weather Warnings For All Road Users

McClartys Insurance, urge all drivers to take extra care on the roads as forecasters warn of heavy snow and gale force winds, with Coleraine and Ballymena among the towns experiencing the most.

Tricky driving conditions are expected as the wintry weather showers are thought to continue throughout the weekend, turning to sleet. Winds are expected to reach gale-force starting in the North Coast. On Wednesday, the strong gales had caused trees to fall in Broughshane and Ballymena in Co. Antrim.

Weather Warnings For All Road Users

Managing Director of the Coleraine based Insurance firm, Gary McClarty said, “We think it is important to warn people that even the most experienced drivers can have trouble driving during such weather conditions."

The Met Office issued a status yellow weather warning for wind and snow, to serve until midnight. This warning is applicable to Counties Antrim, Armagh, Down, Londonderry and Tyrone.

Transport NI has salted roads on its scheduled network, after the road temperature dropped to below zero causing an addition ice hazard to the snow. They advise motorists to "exercise caution, especially when travelling on untreated roads."
