New snow ice warning issued by Met Éireann

New snow ice warning issued by Met Éireann

A status yellow warning, issued by Met Éireann, says strong winds with gusts up to 110 kph are possible from 3pm this Saturday.

The wind warning for Munster, Leinster and Galway applies to Saturday afternoon and evening.

A yellow warning for snow and ice has been issued to run from five past midnight tomorrow until 11.55pm.

STV weather presenter Sean Batty said: "The freezing level will drop as an area of rain moves east into Saturday night, which could allow a spell of snow to low levels before clearing".

"Next week, the weather will remain in its changeable phase, going between milder and colder spells with further spells of snow".

It will see wintry showers give accumulations of up to 3cm of snow, with larger amounts on higher ground - especially in Ulster and Connacht.




The temperatures will reach highs of 1C to 4C, with moderate to fresh westerly winds. Temperatures in the north will be 8C at their highest, with the south-west enjoying slightly higher temperatures of 12C.

Rain will develop in the west and will spread eastwards to all areas overnight. Frost and icy patches will develop also.

Met Eireann warned that the wind chill factor will makes conditions appear even colder.

Half term for many parents and children will be a washout as Britain is set to be battered by heavy rain and snow for most of next week.

"The showers will be most frequent in the west and north and will become more isolated this afternoon".

Friday morning will be cold with frost and wintry showers, according to Met Éireann.
