Forecasters say that showers moving in later this afternoon and into this evening are expected to fall increasingly as sleet, snow and hail, with the chance that it may settle in places.
In addition, a more persistent spell of rain, sleet and snow has the potential to affect the Island and other parts of the South Coast during the early hours of Friday morning.
Islanders are being reminded of the risk of some travel disruption and difficult driving conditions.
UPDATE @ 12:35 – Island Roads will be gritting the road network from 18:00 tonight (Thursday).
