Snow and ice warning issued for parts of Ireland on Monday and Tuesday

Guess what? More bad weather news!

In the last few days we've rain warnings and flood warnings, and now we've got the trifecta, thanks to a new snow and ice warning.


According to the Met Office, frequent and heavy hail and snow showers are likely to affect many parts of Northern Ireland from Monday evening, continuing for much of the day on Tuesday.

Travel delays on roads are possible, with a small chance of cancellations to public transport. There is a small chance that power cuts will occur and other services, such as mobile phone coverage, may be affected.

In addition some roads and pavements may become icy, increasing the chance of injuries from slips and falls.

The snow and ice warning is in place from 18.00 on Monday to 23.59 on Tuesday.

At the time of writing, Met Eireann have not issued a similar warning for the rest of Ireland, but they do forecast that from Monday night, the weather will turn very cold and very windy with showers turning increasingly wintry in western and northwestern counties with gale force westerly winds.

Additionally, showers should be well scattered in eastern areas. Overnight lows of 0 to 2 degrees Celsius with frost anywhere sheltered from the wind.

We will update should any additional weather warnings be issued.
