National snow-ice warning issued with more unsettled weather on the way
Snow and ice on untreated surfaces will lead to hazardous driving conditions in some areas.

LAST UPDATE | Feb 23rd 2022, 3:00 PM

A NATIONAL STATUS Yellow snow-ice warning has been issued by Met Éireann.

The warning will be in effect from 10pm today until midday tomorrow.

Blustery showers of hail, sleet and snow are expected during this period, Met Éireann has warned.

Ice on untreated surfaces will lead to hazardous driving conditions on Wednesday night and Thursday morning. Some thunder and lightning are also expected.

A snow/ice warning was issued for Donegal, Leitrim and Sligo earlier but has since been extended to include the entire country.

A Status Yellow wind warning for Donegal and Mayo was in place from 11am to 3pm today.

By this evening, scattered wintry showers will begin to push into the northwest. It will be “rather windy, in fresh to strong and gusty southwesterly winds”.

Highest temperatures will range six to 11 degrees Celsius, before turning colder amid the rain.

Some snow, sleet and rain showers are expected tonight with a chance of isolated thunderstorms and local hail.

Temperatures will drop to as low as minus two degrees in some areas, but feel even colder due to an added wind chill factor. Some frost and ice are also expected later, especially in sheltered areas.

It will be cold and windy tomorrow with sunny spells and further scattered wintry showers. Snow showers and icy stretches during tomorrow morning will lead to treacherous conditions in some areas.

There will also be some thundery showers and hail, especially in the west and north. Highest temperatures will range from just three to seven degrees, coldest in the north.
