Offaly included in fresh snow and ice warning from Met Éireann

Despite a number of clickbait articles about risks of snow this evening, this area is likely to avoid any snowfall this evening.

The warning also covers counties Cavan, Monaghan, Longford, Leitrim, Mayo and Sligo.

The warning will be in place between 4pm on December 7 until 6pm the following evening.

The warning states: "This could lead to road, rail and air travel delays, with the potential for vehicles to become stranded or public transport to be cancelled. Northwest winds will be strong and gusty". A widespread sharp ground frost will form during clear spells with icy patches forming widely.

Met Eireann forecaster John Eagleton said temperatures are set to plunge tonight.

The warning is in place from 4am on Sunday morning, with forecasters predicting a spell of heavy snow over some parts of the United Kingdom during the day. It'll stay cold, but bright. It will turn progressively colder as the day progresses, in a strong west to northwest wind and some of the showers will turn wintry later in the day.

The Road Safety Authority has cautioned motorists to expect the unexpected with high winds and icy conditions.

A weather front from the north is to hit the country in the next few days with Friday set to be one of the coldest days of the winter to date.
