Met Éireann issues nationwide advisory for cold and wintry weather

Stay warm and dry...

As previewed on Saturday morning, the country is set to get very cold indeed.

Not only that, but snow is coming.

While conditions aren't set to be so bleak that we're all up to our knees in the stuff, mercury is set to drop with snow, sleet and hail all on the horizon.

Following up from the initial forecast, Met Éireann has issued an official nationwide advisory with snow expected to arrive in parts of Ireland on Sunday (26 January), lasting until Tuesday.

The advisory, issued on Saturday at 7pm, notes that "cold and wintry" weather will develop from Sunday evening with showers of hail, sleet and snow occurring.

Snow showers are expected to be most frequent in Ulster and Connaught, especially so on high ground.

The advisory is valid from 6pm on Sunday until 3pm on Tuesday.
