Ireland has transformed into a winter wonderland as snow, frost and ice hit over the weekend.
A Status Orange low temperature warning for all of Ireland was issued yesterday and went into effect from 8pm last night, lasting until 10am today.
The alert warns of “extremely low temperatures tonight with severe frost, ice and lying snow” as temperatures were expected to plummet to between –2C and –8C in some areas.
Severe frost will linger in many parts of the country today with temperatures only reaching 3 or 4 °C in cold northerly winds. Otherwise a cold, bright day with mixed wintry showers across Connacht, Ulster and west Munster but mainly dry elsewhere.— Met Éireann (@MetEireann) December 11, 2017
The worst-affected regions are counties in the eastern half of Connacht as well as Leinster and Ulster.
