Three weather warnings in place as bad weather hits country

A Met Office yellow weather warning for snow and ice has been extended into next week. Larger amounts of snow are forecast for Ulster and Connacht, particularly on higher ground.

The weather warning comes in as a status yellow warning, with raging winds predicted for County Galway and the most part of Munster and Leinster.

Gusts of up to 110km/h and mean speeds between 55-65km/h are expected.

A rain warning is also in place, with between 25 and 35mm of rain is set to fall today in Connacht, Cavan, Monaghan and Donegal.

After overnight snowfall turned swathes of the country white, the United Kingdom was warned it faces this winter's coldest spell of weather yet in the north-east of Scotland, where temperatures are expected to plummet to -8C today.

However, according to fellow Olympian Shani Davis , the process that led to Hamlin being named flag bearer was not a fair one . That fact, that this is her last chance to be flagbearer, may have swayed some votes in her favor. "And we just get stronger".

"At this stage, I wouldn't rule out a few centimetres of snow falling to low levels in central and southern areas later". Towards evening, rain will develop in the west.

The spokesman added: "Scattered wintry showers of hail, sleet and snow will follow behind".

Sunday: Bright spells and snow showers, most frequent in northwest. Lowest temperatures will range from -2°C to +2°C, with frost and icy patches developing.

Friday morning will be cold with frost and wintry showers, according to Met Éireann. However, fresh, gusty, southerly winds will cause temperatures to rise, which will clear any frost.

Wednesday morning will be wet with rain and sleet, heavy at times. Rain and strong southerly winds will spread overnight.
