SUB-ZERO WEATHER CONDITIONS are set to return from tonight, with “outbreaks of rain, sleet and snow to develop in the south of the country” tomorrow, according to Met Éireann.

Temperatures are expected to dip to minus 5 tonight, with little change tomorrow morning. Sleet, hail and snow will begin to fall in the south later tomorrow.

Some road temperatures this morning are below zero this morning and AA Roadwatch warns of black ice affecting parts of Mayo, Sligo, Donegal, and the Kilnaleck to Finnea Road.

Irish Weather Online is forecasting that those wintry showers will become heavier by the afternoon, and spread further northeast.

Snowfall of between 5cm and 15cm could fall on higher ground, and tempertures are expected to stay low with highs of around 4 or 6 degrees.

The good news is, the last of the snow and sleet will clear on Saturday, with most parts of the country becoming dry and bright for the day. The early days of next week will bring milder weather.
