A snow-ice weather warning has been issued by Met Eireann

The powerful storm front has resulted in a nationwide snow-ice warning due to kick in tonight at 11pm.

And that's before we even mention the severe frost and snow showers forecast for Thursday and heading into the weekend, with temperatures expected to drop to as low as -3 degrees in places.

The forecasters have issued a Status Yellow weather warning for Donegal, Leitrim, Sligo, Mayo, Galway, Clare and Kerry which comes into effect at 3am on Thursday morning.

The warning is also in place for Mayo, Donegal and Kerry. "Icy stretches too. North and northwest counties will be most at risk, as well as higher ground elsewhere".


The snow-ice warning of Ireland will last well into Thursday afternoon and will be renewed briefly come nightfall until Friday at 4pm.

AA Roadwatch, the traffic monitoring service, is also warning motorists to expect delays and allow additional journey time if conditions take a turn for the worst. Temperatures will fall considerably on Thursday evening.

According to the weather service, the rain "will persist in some areas, especially in Atlantic coastal counties and in southern coastal areas, where there will be some locally heavy bursts, with a slight risk of thunder on the west coast".
