Met Eireann warns of snow and freezing conditions for parts of Ireland for tonight.

In a weather advisory issued for Ireland, Met Eireann says a mixture of rain, sleet and snow will emerge from the south over the country this evening and early this evening (Monday evening) with a mass of cold air coming in North.

Ice is expected to form in some areas which could lead to dangerous travel conditions overnight and into Tuesday morning.

According to Met Eireann, Tuesday will be a cold and bright day with frost and patches of ice that will dissipate in the morning. There will be plenty of bright winter sun around, with only a few showers of rain or hail affecting some western and northern counties. Maximum temperatures 4-7 degrees in moderate north-westerly breezes.

Tuesday night will be cold and largely dry with long clearings. Temperatures generally -3 to 0 degrees cooler, but a degree or 2 cooler in northern Ulster, with widespread heavy frost developing in light to moderate westerly winds.

In his latest weather forecast for Ireland, Met Eireann says it will be generally cold until the weekend. A wave of rain on Wednesday evening will bring a brief, milder interlude before the cold returns on Thursday. Showers later in the week will sometimes turn to hail and sleet.
