Offaly included in fresh snow and ice warning from Met Éireann

Nicola Maxey from the Met Office said: "With snow in the forecast it's a good idea to keep an eye on the latest Met Office forecast and warnings for your area to ensure you're up to date with the latest situation".

"This could lead to road, rail and air travel delays, with the potential for vehicles to become stranded or public transport to be cancelled".

Temperatures will hit as low as minus 3C in the north west throughout Friday.

The warning will remain in place until 4pm tomorrow.

According to Met Eireann, occasional snow showers will occur this evening, tonight and during Friday - with accumulations of up to 3cm expected.

The north and northwest counties are most at risk for ice.

Widespread sharp ground frost will form tonight along with icy patches ahead of another cold day on Friday.

A chief forecaster for the Met Office said: "During winter weather which brings snow showers, it is not uncommon for snow amounts to vary considerably across short distances".

"The showers will turn increasingly wintry with falls of hail and snow - especially in the north, and a few will push further south this evening". Northwest winds will stay strong and gusty.
