And now Met Éireann have issued yet another weather warning as a cold snap settles into the country.

Forecasters warned that it will be very cold overnight, with temperatures dropping to between -1C and -5C.

In some areas, particularly in the west and northwest counties, the temperatures may get even colder.

Forecasters warned that temperatures will struggle to reach above 0 on Wednesday.

It comes as forecasters warned of further scattered snow showers on Wednesday, with the eastern half of the country being hit the heaviest and most frequently.

Temperatures will struggle to get to and stay above zero, with the added wind chill and fresh winds making it feel much colder.

Met Éireann warned that there will be even more snow showers on Wednesday, with the east and south coasts most affected.

The snow showers will drift through the midlands and into the western areas at times.

Temperatures will reach lows between -5C and -7C, with a significant wind chill factor, in fresh to strong easterly winds.

The weather advisory for the whole country, which Met Éireann issued on Monday, remains in place.

Snow showers, mainly affecting eastern areas on Tuesday, will progressively become more widespread and heavier through midweek.

A spell of persistent and heavy snow is expected to extend from the south late Thursday and Thursday night, with significant and disruptive accumulations.
