Snow and ice could cause travel disruption on Wednesday before Britain is struck by another burst of heavy rain and gales from Storm Dennis over the weekend.

The Met Office expects more snow showers combined with strong winds.

A small number of schools in Northern Ireland have been forced to close as a result. 

They are: 

Ceara School 

Dromore High School 

Fair Hill Primary School 

Fivemiletown College 

Fivemiletown Primary School 

Glasswater Primary School

The fourth named storm of the 2019-20 season, Dennis, is set to bring a second consecutive weekend of wet and windy weather after Ciara struck the UK with winds of up to 97mph.

Gusts of 50mph are expected, with more than 60mph possible over hills, coastal areas and exposed locations, the Met Office said.

Predicted heavy rain could also run the risk of further flooding, with 43 warnings still in place in England, six in Scotland and one in Wales following recent heavy rainfall.
