A RED WEATHER warning has been issued by Met Éireann for five counties.

The snow-ice warning covers: Dublin, Kildare, Louth, Wicklow and Meath.

The warning follows heavy snowfall overnight which saw up to three inches of snow deposited in areas.

Met Éireann says:

“Heavy overnight snowfall has led to accumulations of snow between 5 and 10cm. Snow showers will continue to occur during today and again tonight with further accumulations. Total snowfall up to midday Thursday may reach 25cm.”

The warning is in effect until tomorrow at midday.

Elsewhere, a status orange snow-ice warning remains in place for Wexford, Cork, Waterford Carlow and Laois and a yellow snow-ice warning is in effect for Kilkenny, Longford, Offaly, Westmeath, and Tipperary.

A yellow low temperature warning was issued last night for the entire country.
