More cold weather is expected this week, with Met Éireann issuing another snow-ice warning for the whole of Ireland.

A status yellow warning - the lowest warning level - will come into effect tomorrow (Wednesday) morning at 11am, and continue until 8pm on Thursday evening.

Forecasters say there will be scattered heavy thundery showers, while rain will occasionally turn to sleet and possibly snow.

According to Met Éireann, snow accumulations are not expected to exceed 3cm, while north-west areas will be most at risk.

They add that there are likely to be slippery roads and paths due to frost & ice.

Separately, a status yellow wind warning has been issued for Galway, Mayo, Clare, Cork, Kerry and Limerick.

Met Éireann says: "West to southwest winds veering west to northwest with mean speeds of 45 to 65km/h will gust up to 85km/h. Winds will be strongest for western areas."

The warning is valid between noon on Wednesday and 10pm on Thursday.
