Few places in the north of Ireland escape showers of snow sleet and hail.

Overnight showers of snow, hail or sleet affected most parts of the north of Ireland and the bad weather continued with visibility poor at times.

Believe it or not, snow at this time of year isn’t a rarity; it’s as likely at Easter as it is at Christmas.

In 1993 snow fell as late as the month of May.

Snow was a novel experience for one Australian visitor recently arrived in the Northern Ireland.

It’s unbelievable.

He has some photographs to show the people back home how white it was.

The Meteorological Office say snow showers will die away, but there will be icy patches around dusk with dull grey, wet weather returning.
