Status yellow weather warning issued for 12 counties

MET ÉIREANN have issued a snow ice warning for the province of Leinster.

While most of the country is relieved to see the snow all washed away, it looks like certain counties may still be in the haze of ice and snow.

In counties Meath, Dublin, Wicklow, Carlow, Longford, Kildare, Kilkenny, Laois, Louth, Offaly, Westmeath and Wexford, the snow is set to continue thawing out, leading a risk for floods on the roads.

Temperatures are to remain low, with frost predicted for the overnight period.

The status yellow warning was issued this morning at 10am and is to stay valid until Wednesday 7th March at 10am.


A status yellow warning is to caution people to be aware of risk while driving and travelling in pedestrianised areas.

The heavy snow of last week is still affecting and will continue to affect the residents of Ireland this week, as universities, schools, and thousands of homes across Dublin experience water shortages.
