Better wrap up warm.

Met Éireann has issued a new winter weather advisory for Ireland which states that some showers of snow are expected over the coming days.

Issued on Friday afternoon (13 January), the alert is now in effect and is set to last until midday next Thursday.

“Turning cold across the country between Sunday evening and Thursday morning as an Arctic airflow becomes established, bringing sharp to severe frosts and icy stretches on roads and footpaths,” it reads.

“Some showers of hail, sleet and snow are expected with the potential for freezing fog.”

Met Éireann added that further updates to the advisory and warnings are expected to be published in the following days.
