Thursday night is expected to be the most severe night of this week as far as the adverse conditions are concerned, with blizzards and severe thunderstorms thrown into the mix along with the heavy snow and ice the country already has to contend with.
A status red weather warning has been extended to the entire country until Friday afternoon, schools and colleges have been closed and if you do need to travel, keep an eye on the roads most severely affected by the conditions before getting behind the wheel.
