Met Éireann issue another snow warning for Louth

The Met Office issued yellow weather warnings for much of England and Wales overnight, urging commuters to expect delays and cancellations this morning (Thursday) as gusts affect rail, road and ferry services.

Met Éireann has issued two new weather warnings as Ireland looks set to be hit with snow, ice and strong winds for a second night in a row.

"This is an update to the warning, shrinking the yellow area and also the validity period". The weather warning is in place until 9am.

The warning is valid until 3am Thursday, January 18. Fresh to strong and gusty westerly winds will gradually moderate through the day.

"Later this afternoon heavy and persistent rain will push into Atlantic coastal counties in a strengthening south to southwest wind and winds will increase again gale force along southwest coasts later". However, in the north rain will turn to sleet and snow leading to significant accumulations of snow.

A further few centimetres of snow is likely across some of the high ground in western Scotland, the Met Office said. Lowest temperatures will be 0 to +4 degrees.
