Orange alert: New weather warnings as snow and ice grip country

There’ll be snow and sleet pretty much everywhere.

MET ÉIREANN HAS issued an ‘orange alert’ weather warning for Cavan and Monaghan, with snow accumulations of up to 6cm expected in some areas.

The warning, which came into effect at 6am, advises:

Wintry showers will continue today. Snow accumulations of 3 to 6 cm are likely, especially on high ground.

The ‘yellow’ alert snow ice warning for most of the remainder of the country has also been updated.

“Wintry showers will continue today. Snow accumulations up to 3 cm are likely. Higher accumulations are possible over hills and mountains,” the warning says.

It applies to Connacht, Dublin, Kildare, Laois, Longford, Louth, Wicklow, Offaly, Westmeath, Meath, Donegal, Clare, Kerry and Tipperary.

Parts of the country have already experienced snow over the past 24 hours or so — AA Roadwatch is warning that some routes are impassable this morning as a result.
