It's not going away for a while, I'm afraid.

Met Éireann has issued a Status Yellow warning for the entire country, with different forms of snow and ice on the horizon.

According to the national forecaster, scattered showers of hail, sleet and snow are expected, alongside icy stretches across Thursday evening, Thursday night and Friday morning.

This, in turn, will lead to hazardous travelling conditions in some parts of the country.

Showers will be most widespread in the west and north of the country, where some accumulations are likely.

Isolated thunderstorms are also anticipated by Met Éireann.

The warning is in effect from 4pm on Thursday (6 January) and will remain in place until 11am on Friday morning.

Per this warning, frequent sleet, hail and snow showers may lead to travel disruption.

The warning is in place from 8pm on Thursday until 11am on Friday.
