The Met Office has issued a travel warning saying the storm could cause travel disruption and weather conditions which have already meant the cancellation of some flights and trains across Northern Ireland.
The Met Office has issued a number of weather warnings for snow, ice, rain and wind across most of Britain, including Northern Ireland, as Storm Barra slammed ashore.
