Status Yellow – Snow-ice warning for Ireland
Met Eireann has issued a weather warning for the whole country for this weekend lasting until Monday. A highly mobile Atlantic regime looks set to dominate our weather pattern through this weekend and the coming week. This will bring a sustained period of unsettled, often very windy and at times wintry weather with showers of hail, sleet and snow.
Snow-ice warning issued

According to Met Eireann, A very strong Jet Stream will help to push some vigorous and potentially disruptive Atlantic weather systems over Ireland during the period.
Strong and blustery winds look likely to feature from Saturday (9th March) through to at least Wednesday (13th) with frequent gales at sea. Sea conditions will be very rough and there will be exceptionally high seas and swell in Atlantic coastal regions at times.
There is certainly potential for warnings to be issued over the coming days, so please do stay up to date with the Met Éireann forecast.
Sunday 10th March
Sunday will be a cold and windy day with widespread blustery showers. Many of the showers will be heavy and wintry in nature with a mix of rain, hail, sleet and snow. Scattered thunderstorms will also occur. Fresh to strong and gusty westerly winds will reach gale force along Atlantic coasts. Afternoon highs will be around 3 to 5 degrees generally, but 6 or 7 degrees in coastal areas of the south and southwest.
