THERE ARE BOTH wind and snow-ice weather warnings in place tomorrow as a “bitterly cold” day is expected by Met Éireann.

The status yellow wind warning is place from noon tomorrow for the western coastal counties from Kerry to Mayo.

Mean wind speeds of 45 to 65 km/h are to be expected with gusts of up to 85 km/h also possible.

The status yellow snow-ice warning is in place for all Irish counties tomorrow as heavy, thundery rain showers will occasionally turn to sleet and possibly snow.

Both weather warnings remain in place until Thursday evening.

Maximum temperatures throughout tomorrow of 4 or 5 degrees celsius are being predicted with a wind chill adding to the icy conditions.

“Showers will be widespread, some of which will be heavy and prolonged. Some will also fall as hail or sleet, with hill snow and the ongoing risk of thunder, ” Met Éireann says in its forecast for tomorrow.

The night is expected to remain very windy with strong and gusty westerly winds.

Later on in the week it is likely to remain cold from Thursday through to Saturday, with frost at night, before becoming milder at the latter end of the weekend.
