There's snow need to batten down the hatches: Met Éireann withdraw weather warnings as higher temperatures on the way
Milder weather expected from now on
Met Éireann has withdrawn its weather warnings for snow and ice and says the "foreseeable future is much more settled".
After a bitterly cold few days, warmer conditions are on the way with temperatures expected to reach highs of 9 degrees on Saturday.
The orange and yellow weather warnings weren't due to expire until 6pm this evening but forecaster Aoife Murray says tonight will see temperatures turn milder.
"There will still be some wintery showers in high grounds up north but generally, the risk of snow is truly gone.
"As of tonight, it will be getting much milder."
Bright and sunny spells are also expected on Saturday, while there will be some scattered showers in the southwest and north.

Meanwhile, Sunday will see scattered outbreaks of rain and drizzle in the early morning, with the rest of the day remaining largely dry.
Earlier this week, many counties across Ireland experienced snowfall for the first time this winter.
The icy conditions also caused travel problems around the country with lots of traffic and flight delays.
However, according to Met Éireann the weather looks set to improve from here on in.
