Higher Ground Set To Be Worst Hit By Snow

The warning was recently issued and it is set to be valid from now until 6:00pm tomorrow evening (Friday, December 8) with plenty of snow showers expected.

A status yellow wind warning has also been set in place for Donegal, Galway, Leitrim, Mayo, Sligo, Clare and Kerry.

It became valid at 4pm today and will stay in place until 6pm tomorrow.

They are also warning of icy roads and footpaths.

Looking ahead to tonight's forecast, Met Eireann predict: "Wintry showers will be widespread overnight and frequent in the north with accumulations of snow over inland parts of Ulster and other northern areas".

GARDAI have issued a warning about snow and ice as a national weather alert remains in place.


Forecasters say we're in for bitterly cold conditions until Sunday.

"It will be cold for the next 10 days, with temperatures hardly making it up to 10C during the day", said Mr Eagleton.

Most of the wintry showers will fall at night and snow is expected to gather on higher ground.

Despite a number of clickbait articles about risks of snow this evening, this area is likely to avoid any snowfall this evening.

The Met Office has warned of flying debris that could lead to injuries or danger to life, while damage to property is also possible.
