The yellow wind warning - which is in place for Munster, Leinster and Galway - comes into effect at 3pm on Saturday until 8pm.

On Friday afternoon, Met Éireann issued their latest batch of seemingly never-ending weather warnings and no county in the Republic of Ireland is being let off the hook.

The status yellow alert which warns of wintry showers and accumulations (of snow) of up to 3cm in some places is due to remain in place throughout Sunday.

STV weather presenter Sean Batty said: "The freezing level will drop as an area of rain moves east into Saturday night, which could allow a spell of snow to low levels before clearing".

Tomorrow will be a colder and brighter day for many with spells of sunshine.

'The strong westerly will bring frequent and heavy snow and hail showers to the north and west on Sunday as well as a fairly significant wind chill'.

More showers this afternoon will give a total 24 hour rainfall accumulation for today of between 25 and 35 mm.

The meteorological service put the snow and ice warning in place until noon today but you know what? Highest temperatures will range from 4°C to 6°C. Frost and icy patches will develop also.

Rain will develop in the west and will spread eastwards to all areas overnight.

Saturday will be wet and windy but it will turn colder on Saturday night with sleet and snow forecast. Highest temperatures will range from 9°C to 12°C.

"Elsewhere a frost, but, sunny skies, and already we will start to see further wintery showers pushing into the west".
