Batten down the hatches: Met Éireann issue warning to 7 counties

Met Office issues warning over possible snow and ice in Flintshire later this week

The Met Office said the high winds were expected to damage buildings and cause flying debris, as well as power cuts, severe travel disruption and risky waves.

Weather warnings have been issued as parts of the United Kingdom are braced for winds of up to 90mph, causing potential danger to life, with the arrival of Storm Caroline.

Travel and power loss disruption is expected and various agencies have issued statements following Storm Caroline.

The wintry weather follows snow and cold temperatures experienced in parts of Scotland earlier this month.

"Some damage to buildings is possible, such as tiles blowing off roofs", the Met Office said. Strong northwest winds may cause drifting of the snow in places with blizzard conditions possible at times across northern Scotland.

"At the moment we have a yellow weather warning in place, but it could be upgraded to amber". "There is a good chance that power cuts may also occur".

Metro School is Taking Advantage of 'Computer Science Education Week'
At P.S. 241 in Brooklyn, for example, Snoopy teamed up with codeSpark Academy to debut Snoopy Snow Brawl, a learn-to-code game. In addition, fewer than 6,000 K-12 students are enrolled in a computer science course.

There will be potentially damaging gusts of up to 80mph there, with higher speeds possible across the Northern and Western Isles.

Government forecasters expect this month to be hit by easterly winds, which frequently come from as far away as Russian Federation and Siberia to bring Britain's coldest winter weather.

The snow-ice warning of Ireland will last well into Thursday afternoon and will be renewed briefly come nightfall until Friday at 4pm.

Northern England is also expecting snow on Sunday evening.

"It is likely that some coastal routes, sea fronts and coastal communities will be affected by spray and/or large waves".

The Met Office said "predominantly colder periods" are expected through the second half of December until after Christmas, with snow in the Midlands and North.
