It'll be all white on tonight
Motorists are being warned of snow and ice on Island roads over the next 48 hours.
Isolated showers this afternoon will see sleet or hail over high ground, but becoming more frequent this evening with hail or snow to lower levels, initially in the north but becoming more widespread later on.
Gritting teams have been out this afternoon ahead of the wintry weather.
The decision has been taken in order to try and keep traffic disruption to a minimum.
Drivers are asked to be patient and keep a safe distance behind gritting vehicles.
Weather man Neil Young says with a showery air flow inbound, exact predictions are difficult - but there will be snow in many parts of the Island leading to possible disruption late tonight and tomorrow.
