Status Yellow snow/ice warning in effect nationwide

There will be falls of hail, sleet and snow, creating icy and hazardous conditions.

LAST UPDATE | 23 Jan 2021

A STATUS YELLOW snow/ice warning for Ireland is in place from 6pm this evening until midday tomorrow.

Met Éireann has warned that there will be falls of hail, sleet and snow, creating icy and hazardous conditions.

Additionally, a Status Yellow Gale warning was issued at 5pm due to strong winds over coastal waters.

Northwesterly winds are expected to reach gale force eight at times tonight and tomorrow morning on coastal waters from Roches Point up to Loop Head and Slyne Head on the west coast.

Met Éireann says wintry showers will move in from the Atlantic to affect Munster and Connacht, bringing falls of snow in some places.

Maximum temperatures will range from two to five degrees Celsius.

Overnight, a band of wintry showers will extend northeastwards across the country, leading to falls of sleet and snow in many areas.

It will be cold and icy with a widespread sharp frost and minimum temperatures of zero to minus four degrees.

Tomorrow will be very cold and snow could lead to hazardous conditions on roads and pathways.

There will be further hail and snow showers, especially across eastern counties.

Wintry showers will become more scattered by tomorrow afternoon with some sunny spells developing.

Maximum temperatures will range from zero to four degrees, dropping to as low as minus three degrees overnight.
