However, Alan O'Reilly from Carlow Weather says it is likely the worst of the conditions have passed.
He told Newstalk: "For those looking for the snow, many might have seen it fall for a time but then see it turn from sleet and then to rain.
"But in some areas, especially in the northeast and on higher ground in Wicklow, it may well have continued to be snow and there may be some accumulations of snow, and it is possible is some higher ground parts of the east in general.
"But for many, it will have turned to rain and the thaw will slowly set in.
Mr O'Reilly added that snow showers will persist in places, before milder conditions return next week.
He said: "It's going to be turning much less cold, slowly though, and it will continue to be very windy though.
"Also continuing is some falls of sleet and snow and rain, the heaviest rain will be in the south of the country but clearing east then through [Saturday] with some dry spells for at least a while."
