Met Éireann has issued a status yellow snow and ice warning for Connacht, Cavan and Donegal.

As stated previously, the next few days are expected to be quite chilly but as things stand, those seven counties are set for a particularly cold night.

The warning is in place from 6pm on Sunday 26 January until 11am on Monday 27 January.

Aside from this, a weather advisory is also in place for Ireland.

The nationwide advisory states that "sold and wintry weather will develop from Sunday evening. Showers of hail, sleet and snow will occur in places. Snow showers most frequent in Ulster and Connacht and especially so on high ground."

That advisory is in place from 6pm on Sunday 26 January until 3pm on Tuesday 28 January.

In terms of the upcoming forecast, snow is expected to fall over the next three days as the mercury drops.
