  • Weekend Weather: Wet And Windy

Met √Čireann have issued two status yellow weather warnings - including a countrywide snow-ice one - for this weekend.

The status yellow alert which warns of wintry showers and accumulations (of snow) of up to 3cm in some places is due to remain in place throughout Sunday.

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

Gusts of up to 110 km per hour are expected.

Meanwhile, a rainfall warning for Connacht, Cavan, Monaghan and Donegal came into effect this morning, and is valid until midnight.

After overnight snowfall turned swathes of the country white, the United Kingdom was warned it faces this winter's coldest spell of weather yet in the north-east of Scotland, where temperatures are expected to plummet to -8C today.

The spokesman added: "Scattered wintry showers of hail, sleet and snow will follow behind".

Temperatures will only range between 1 and 4 degrees during the day, going below freezing again overnight.

Rain will spread from the west to the east. Snow and sleet will fall in many areas as temperatures will drop to -3 degrees.

A very cold westerly airstream will bring frequent snow showers to many western and central areas on Sunday. It will clear overnight with wintry showers following and with frost and ice developing. Sharp or severe frost and icy patches will develop at night.
