Ireland is set to be hit by more snow today, with a snow/ice and low temperature warning in place for the entire county.

The day will start off cold and icy, although it will be slightly less cold on the Atlantic coast.

According to Met Eireann, light sleet and snow will spread southwards during the morning, with slight accumulations of snow combined with ice leading to treacherous conditions on untreated surfaces

Southeastern and southern counties including Dublin, Waterford and Cork look to be the worst hit by the snow.

A clearance to sunshine and well-scattered wintry showers will follow from the north for the afternoon and evening, with maximum afternoon temperatures of 0 to 3C.

Tonight will be very cold, with widespread frost and ice. Many areas will be dry and clear, but there will be some wintry showers in the north, and a few hail or snow showers may drift in to affect some Irish Sea coastal districts.

Temperatures could drop as low as -4C.

Tomorrow is also set to start out frosty and icy, with highest temperatures hovering around just 0 to 3C.

“There’ll be some sunny spells but a few wintry showers will affect north Connacht, Ulster and possibly coastal parts of Leinster,” Met Eireann warns.

“A severe frost setting in quickly after dark on Friday evening.”

The good news is that it will turn less cold after Friday, with maximum temperatures of 2 to 5C on Saturday.

Frost and ice will slowly clear to give us a mostly dry day with sunny spells. It will be cloudier in the northwest, with a risk of some patchy rain.

Saturday night will see lowest temperatures of -2 to +4C.

Looking ahead to Sunday, it will be dry in many areas with a mix of cloud and bright spells. Patches of rain will drift in to affect Atlantic coastal counties, with the possibility of more persistent rain on the north coast.

Highest temperatures will hit 5 to 8C.
