There will be sleet and hill snow in some areas on Tuesday

Some snow will potentially fall in Ireland on Tuesday.

Storm Brendan tracked across Ireland on Monday, bringing with it strong winds and heavy rain, leaving thousands of people without power and causing some coastal flooding.

The last of the weather warnings expired on Monday night but the wintry weather is set to continue on Tuesday, with Met Éireann forecasting sleet and also some snow on higher ground.

Tuesday will be a cold day with persistent rain extending across the country during the morning and early afternoon. There's a possibility it will turn to sleet in some areas and snow on higher ground.

People in Munster and Leinster can expect heavy and possibly thundery rainfall, but the amounts will be smaller in the west and northwest.

Clearer conditions will move across the country from the west in the evening but there will still be some scattered showers.

Temperatures will range from three to six degrees with the southeast being the mildest part of the country.

We're not finished with the wind just yet, with Met Éireann promising some very strong winds on the southeast of the country for a time in the afternoon.

Tuesday night will be cold and breezy, with clear spells and scattered showers, but most of them will be in the western half of the country, with a risk of hail and thunder, mainly on Atlantic coasts.
