MET ÉIREANN HAS downgraded its weather warning for Dublin, Kildare, Louth, Wicklow and Meath from orange to yellow, as further snow showers, mostly light, are expected today.

Meanwhile, they have removed a snow-ice weather warning for Carlow, Kilkenny, Laois, Longford, Wexford, Offaly, Westmeath and Monaghan.

The rest of the country will remain dry and cold with spells of sunshine over western counties. It will also be frosty in many places with moderate easterly winds.

AA Roadwatch says the snow showers are causing poor visibility and slippery conditions in the  east and midlands. They are reminding people that stopping distances are 10 times longer in ice and snow and are advising motorists to use major routes where possible, as they are more likely to have been gritted.

Iarnród Éireann’s services seem to running as normal, with minor delays on some of their DART services.

Bus Éireann says all services are operating normally also, and will continue to monitor the situation and update their news page on a regular basis.

Dublin Bus says that due to the poor conditions the following services have been curtailed:

  • Route 44b is unable to serve Glencullen and is terminating at the Blue Church in Kilternan.
  • Route 65 is unable to serve route from Blessington to Ballymore Eustace/Ballyknockan, terminating at Blessington.
