A number of status yellow wind warnings were also issued this week, with gusts exceeding 100kph having been forecast. As a result people are also advised to be careful on icy roads and footpaths.

Late this afternoon the forecaster issued a Yellow Status Warning for Munster, Dublin, Carlow, Kildare, Kilkenny, Laois, Louth, Wexford, Wicklow, Offaly, Westmeath, Meath and Roscommon.

From Thursday evening and into Friday, the north and northwest of the country have been put on alert for snow showers and icy conditions. It'll stay cold, but bright.


A spokesman for the forecaster said: "A spell of heavy snow is possible over some central parts of the United Kingdom during Sunday".

"It will be cold for the next 10 days, with temperatures hardly making it up to 10C during the day", said Mr Eagleton. The showers will be of hail, sleet and snow with further accumulations possible on higher ground.

Coastal areas should be milder with temperatures closer to 5 or 6 degrees.

Train services in the north and west of the country have been cancelled, while Traffic Scotland is warning of potential disruptions on the road.

The Met Office warning is valid from Friday through to Sunday.
