They add: “Disruption to transport networks seems likely either due to snow or ice.
“Additionally, northwesterly gales and large waves will affect some eastern coastal areas, perhaps leading to local over-topping.

“A cold north to northwesterly airstream will keep the risk of wintry weather going through Friday. Some inland areas, sheltered from the northwesterly wind, seem likely to escape most of the showers.”

Winds are expected to be particularly strong in coastal areas of the county.
