An orange snow-ice caution is in place for Leinster, Cavan, Monaghan, Cork, Tipperary and Waterford until noon on Monday.

The warning reads:

"Widespread lying snow and ice will continue to lead to hazardous conditions.

"There will be a risk of localised flooding due to rising river levels and there will be areas of surface water pooling.

"Mountainous catchments and urban areas most affected."

Meanwhile, a yellow snow-ice warning is in place for Connacht, Donegal, Clare, Kerry and Limerick.

Forecasters warned that "lying snow and ice will continue to cause hazardous conditions" in the areas, and the caution will be in place until noon on Monday.

After a cold snap and the arrival of snow last week, Met Éireann forecasters say that there will be a gradual rise in temperatures as this week goes on.

Monday will see temperatures reaching between 5C and 7C in some areas, with the day being mostly dry and the melting snow leading to an accumulation of surface water.

There will be outbreaks of rain and sleet across east Leinster and parts of the north overnight. Elsewhere, it will be dry with sharp frost and fog patches.
