Met Éireann issues weather warning

A snow-ice weather warning is in place for Kilkenny, Leinster and other counties leading to treacherous roads.

Met Éireann issued the Status Yellow warning for Leinster, Cavan, Monaghan, Donegal, Leitrim, Roscommon, Sligo, Tipperary and Waterford.

It says there wall be falls of snow from Monday evening, with accumulations totalling up to 3cm possible in some areas, leading to treacherous road conditions by Tuesday morning.

The warning is valid from 6pm Monday, February 5 to 6am Tuesday, February 6.

In its forecast Met Éireann says it will be cold and largely dry on Sunday night apart from isolated showers near eastern coasts. Long clear spells will occur in near calm conditions allowing a few mist and fog patches to form. Lowest temperatures of minus 4 and plus 1 degrees Celsius, leading to a widespread sharp or severe frost and the risk of ice on untreated surfaces.

The forecaster says it will be cold with variable cloud and some sunshine to begin on Monday, with frosts only slowly clearing during the morning and just the risk of the odd light shower near the east coast.
