It will be a white weekend for some as freezing cold temperatures will see a blanket of snow covering most parts of the country, forecasters are predicting.

Met Eireann's weather advisory remains in place until midnight on Sunday which brings with it warnings of a risk of frost and icy conditions, with falls of sleet or snow at times.

However, snow could make an appearance as early as this morning as showery rain over Munster and parts of south Leinster turn to sleet or snow in some areas for a time.

A very cold night tonight will see frost and icy patches developing and while it will be dry for most areas, scattered showers will continue in the northwest, turning to sleet and snow at times.

With lowest temperatures of -4 to 0 degrees overnight, tomorrow will start off as another cold day with frost lingering for much of the morning. There will be some nice spells of winter sunshine but scattered showers of hail, sleet and snow will continue in the north and west.

Later tomorrow evening showers in the west will turn to a more persistent band of rain, sleet and snow.

Met Eireann’s forecast adds: “Cold for the remainder of this weekend and to start next week. Sleet and snow on Saturday night will clear eastwards, with a mix of showers and clear spells following for Sunday and Monday. Turning unsettled but milder for the rest of next week.

“Another cold day on Sunday with sunny spells and scattered showers, mainly in the north and west where some will be of sleet or snow.”

For the start of next week it will be largely dry and bright on Monday, with showers becoming more isolated and long sunny spells.

However, it will turn unsettled again on Tuesday with widespread rain, turning to sleet or snow for a time as it meets the colder air.

It will remain milder but unsettled for the rest of next week, with outbreaks of rain and breezy conditions.
