Snow and Ice warning issued for Storm Ciara aftermath

Met Eireann has issued a weather warning for snow and ice expected to hit Ireland in the aftermath of Storm Ciara next week.

The status yellow weather warning for snow and ice covers all of Ireland and will last for two days.

It comes into effect at midnight tonight and will remain in force throughout all of Monday and Tuesday.

Over the two days widespread wintry showers are expected with accumulations expected in the west and north according to Met Eireann.

Some travel disruption is also possible as a result of the weather, particularly on higher routes.

Today a status yellow wind warning is in place as Storm Ciara continues to bring high winds of 50-65km/hr and gusts reaching up to up 110km/hr.

The ESB is still dealing with hundreds of homes across Galway which are without electricity this afternoon due to weather conditions.

A Status Orange gale warning is also in effect for westerly winds on all Irish coastal water, with storm force winds forecast tonight along the Atlantic coast.
