There is also a risk of river and coastal flooding.

And a status yellow snow-ice warning will come into effect for Connacht, Leinster, Cavan, Monaghan and Donegal early on Saturday morning.

Here snow accumulations of 5 cms are possible with more on higher ground.

This will be accompanied by fresh to strong southeast winds.

Warnings will cover most of the country by Saturday. Picture by: Met Éireann

Matthew Martin from Met Éireann told Newstalk Breakfast things should improve by Sunday.

"It looks like we're not quite out of the cold spell just yet, we'll have another go of it tonight.

"There's a band of rain pushing in off the Atlantic, and that looks like it is going to turn to snow across Connacht, Ulster and parts of Leinster again tonight and into Saturday morning."

"But that will be the last of the cold weather, with much milder weather then moving in later tomorrow and during Sunday.

"But it looks like staying very unsettled".
