YELLOW weather Warnings are in place for ice and wintry showers across much of the island of Ireland until Tuesday morning.
Snow has been falling in some areas and is expected to continue on high ground above 150m (approx 500ft).
The UK Met Office and Met Éireann issued the warnings as the mix of rain and snow moved in on Sunday night and into the early hours of Monday.
The Met Office has warned of a “spell of persistent sleet or snow” in the North of Ireland on Monday evening.
It has alsoo issued a yellow status weather warning of ice for all of the North of Ireland.
The warning was issued on Monday morning and is valid from 7 pm on Monday through to 10 am on Tuesday.
“Showers of rain, hail and sleet are likely on Monday night and Tuesday morning, leading to a risk of ice on some surfaces as temperatures fall below freezing,” says the Met Office’s yellow status warning.
Untreated roads across the island will be icy for the morning commute.
The showery nature of the rain/snow mix means amounts will vary from place to place.
It is likely that northern and western counties will receive more wintry weather than other parts.
So the advice is to take care on the roads, plan your journey and slow down.Tags:
