Met Eireann warns of snow showers as temperatures set to plummet
MET Eireann has warned that heavy downfalls of snow are expected in some areas as temperatures are set to tumble overnight.
The news comes as a further blow to home owners after a week of storms and widespread flooding battered the country.
Temperatures look set to dip below zero degrees in many parts of the country tonight and into tomorrow morning.
Areas of the west coast recovering from the worst of last week's storms could be hit again, as snow showers are expected across west Ulster as well as Connacht and west Munster.
The freezing conditions are expected to continue tomorrow, with 'moderate accumulations' of snow expected.
Met Eireann has also warned that isolated thunderstorms could strike parts of the country.
The cold conditions are expected to clear by Wednesday - only to be replaced by further strong winds and heavy rain.
