Snow ... and not just on the hills: Met Éireann's issued a weather warning for the entire country

A Met Éireann snow-ice warning is in effect until tomorrow afternoon.

WATCH OUT ON those footpaths this evening and in the morning — you don’t want to be this guy:

A Met Éireann snow-ice warning is in effect until midday tomorrow.

According to the weather service it will be “very cold tonight, with lowest temperatures falling back to minus 3 or minus 4 degrees”.

There’ll be frosty conditions across the country — and ice in parts too.

On top of all that, the north-west will experience some wintry showers, mainly on higher ground —  though there could be also be some flurries away from the hills.

Tomorrow, we can expect some good, bright sunshine “but scattered wintry showers will affect northern and western areas”.

During the afternoon, it will become more cloudy generally — with some showery rain developing in the west.

Elsewhere will stay dry, apart from the odd shower.

It’ll still be chilly, however.

Temperatures of between 3 to 7 degrees…

The good news is that although the weather will remain changeable and unsettled, Met Éireann says it will be less cold as the weekend goes on.
