A SEVERE WEATHER alert, forecasting snow, has been issued for most areas of the country over the next five days.

Mét Eireann has said the upcoming cold snap is not expected to be as severe as the most recent one.

The northwest should see snow tomorrow, and all all areas of the country could experience snow on Friday.

RTÉ quote Sean O’Neill of the National Roads Authority, who says that 15,000 tonnes of salt stocks have been accumulated, and that this ought to keep national routes open until more supplies arrive in the middle of next week.

Water restrictions are still in effect in Dublin, although they will kick in at the later time of 10pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday – to facilitate restaurants and pubs. Correspondingly, the supply will resume at the later time of 9am on the following mornings.

The council intends for full water services to be in place between 23 December to 28 December.
