Met Éireann has extended the national orange and yellow weather warnings

Snow. Fun until it really, really isn't...

Met Éireann has extended the status orange and yellow snow-ice warnings until 12pm on Monday 5 March as the country still reels from Storm Emma.

The status orange warning applies to Leinster, Cavan, Monaghan, Cork, Tipperary and Waterford.

The status yellow warning concerns Connaught, Donegal, Clare, Kerry and Limerick.

So pretty much the whole country, essentially.

The warnings point to widespread lying snow and ice leading to potentially hazardous conditions.

There is also the risk of localised flooding due to rising river levels and there may also be areas of surface water pooling.

Mountainous catchments and urban areas are expected to the most affected.

As for the general overview for the rest of Sunday:

Scattered outbreaks of rain will continue for the rest of the day, with the rain heavy at times in eastern areas. Cloudy overnight with further outbreaks of rain. Lows in the range 0 to 3 degrees and frost in a few places only. Fog will form widely in the almost calm conditions.
